Under the Influence of the Heavens: Astrology in Medicine in the 15th and 16th Centuries. Summary Before the ideas of Scientific Revolution began to emerge in the mid-16th century, a wholly different view of the natural world dominated the psyche of Western Europe.

Under the Influence of the Heavens: Astrology in Medicine in the 15th and 16th Centuries

The lines between the heavens and earth were porous, and it was believed that what happened in the stars governed what happened on terra firma. In addition to predicting meteorological events and guiding business decisions, astrology was used as a tool for both treatment and diagnosis of any number of aches and pains. Depending on the sign of the zodiac under which a patient was born, the astrologer physician could then make recommendations for treatment based on the placement of the moon and stars in the sky at a particular moment in time. Astrological medicine was also closely related to humorism. Credits Exhibit co-curated by Annie Brogan and Robert D. Space Visualization Laboratory — Adler Planetarium.

Iluminar el fracaso En la sesión de preguntas de una conferencia titulada Pensamiento Crítico dictada por Luís Camnitzer, el artista y escritor comentaba que para él una forma de felicidad podría ser transmitir sus ideas usando sólo telepatía; el artista y escritor explicaba que una transmisión telepática le evitaría usar un soporte externo y entonces, la comunicación de un mensaje, se podría limitar de manera exclusiva a lo importante: la idea. El comentario de Luis Camnitzer, dicho por fuera del rígido libreto que había escrito para su conferencia, reforzaba un dogma que mantuvo a lo largo de todas sus intervenciones: el arte es comunicación. Pero, si el arte es comunicación ¿qué gana y qué pierde el arte? 2. Al decir que la exposición tiene un mensaje, no solamente se informa sobre el arte, también se le da forma al arte. 3.

At the Digital Latin America exhibition, 516 ARTS, Albuquerque New Mexico. With this artwork, Gabriel Vanegas revives interest in an ancient recording device used by the Inca Empire called Quipu, which was made of strings that contained values encoded by knots.
