“El Pla Subtil” was a magazine that we created with a group of friends in our student years in the Humanities faculty so many years ago. It was just a platform for experimentation in literature, philosophy, science, politics, etc or, said in plain terms, a way to have a lot of fun doing whatever we wanted.
And since we remember it with a lot of affection and this blog have essentially the same goals, we want to pay homage to it by borrowing the title.
We became friends talking about Popper and Borges a long time ago and decided to create this blog talking about Nassim Taleb and the fragility of our world.
And, by the way,
“El pla subtil” is the catalan translation for Blackadder‘s “subtle plan”:
Lord Edmund Blackadder: HA! Got him with my subtle plan!
Baldrick: I can’t see any subtle plan!
Lord Edmund Blackadder: Baldrick, you wouldn’t see a subtle plan if it painted itself purple and danced naked on top of a harpsichord, singing “Subtle plans are here again!”
