Thinking with your tongue and your palate

Indisciplines of the aesthetics of taste

Courses and workshops

Do the tongue and the palate think? Why does a fleshy taste organ have the same name as the means that humans use to communicate? Why do “saber” (know) and “sabor” (taste) have a common etymology? This course presents the fundamental vocabulary and arguments of the philosophy of the non-metaphorical use of taste—that is, the taste of the tongue and the palate.
