Visconti-Sforza tarot deck. The Devil card is a 20th-century replacement for the card missing from the original 15th-century deck. François Rabelais gives tarau as the name of one of the games played by Gargantua in his Gargantua and Pantagruel;[2] this is likely the earliest attestation of the French form of the name. Etymology[edit] History[edit] Early decks[edit] Le Bateleur: The Juggler from the Jean Dodal Tarot of Marseilles. Picture-card packs are first mentioned by Martiano da Tortona probably between 1418 and 1425, since the painter he mentions, Michelino da Besozzo, returned to Milan in 1418, while Martiano himself died in 1425. Special motifs on cards added to regular packs show philosophical, social, poetical, astronomical, and heraldic ideas, Roman/Greek/Babylonian heroes, as in the case of the Sola-Busca-Tarocchi (1491)[1] and the Boiardo Tarocchi poem, written at an unknown date between 1461 and 1494.[9] Tarot, tarock and tarocchi games[edit] Varieties[edit]

Midlife crisis For the song by Faith No More, see Midlife Crisis. For the psychological concept, see Generativity vs. Stagnation. Midlife crisis is a term coined in 1965 by Elliott Jaques stating a time where adults come to realize their own mortality and how much time is left in their life.[1] A midlife crisis is experienced by many people during the midlife transition when they realize that life may be more than halfway over. Sometimes, a crisis can be triggered by transitions experienced in these years, such as andropause or menopause, the death of parents or other causes of grief, unemployment or underemployment, realizing that a job or career is hated but not knowing how else to earn an equivalent living, or children leaving home. Crisis vs stressors[edit] Academic research since the 1980s rejects the notion of midlife crisis as a phase that most adults go through. It is important to understand the difference between a midlife crisis and a midlife stressor. Occurrence[edit] Characteristics[edit]
