Pantagruel is the character created by François Rabelais in his five volume work full of philosophic knowledge, humour, satire, violence, escatology and extravagance. For him Pantagruelism was nothing more than "a certain gaiety of mind pickled in the scorn of fortuitous things" which is the philosophy of the giant Pantagruel and also of this, not giant, website.

The objective of the Pantagruelista is to spread ideas capable of taking us out of the comfort zone, ideas that put boundaries to test. The interest is intelectual, but without academic inspirations. I use this space in a less rigorous manner, even though I make efforts to maintain a good quality of content. I leave the tecnical rigor to serious people at serious publications.
