Adventure


In fiction, the adventurer figure or Picaro may be regarded as a descendant of the knight-errant of Medieval romance. Like the knight, the adventurer roams through episodic encounters, usually involving wealth, romance, or fighting. Unlike the knight, the adventurer was a realistic figure, often lower class or otherwise impoverished, who is forced to make his way to fortune, often by deceit. Also, an adventurer is a roguish hero of low social class who lives by his or her wits in a corrupt society.

Galápagos Neutrosophic Syndrome

By: Florentin Smarandache

After following the footsteps of Emil Racoviţă in Antarctica (December 2015), I walked on the footsteps of Charles Darwin in the Galápagos Islands (December 2016).

Conferința științifică a fost anulată și era să rămân blocat în Chile, de unde m-am ...
