Hi Stalin,

Aristotle is said to have first described the traditional 5 senses which relate to external body parts (sight via the eyes, hearing via the ears, touch via the skin, smell via nose and taste via mouth).

But there quite a few other human abilities which have been described as 'senses', see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sense


And finally there is also the speculative idea of the psychic dimension: the so-called 'sixth sense', but this Wikipedia describes why the idea of 'extrasensory perception' (ESP) appears to be an invalid idea... because of the lack of proof that it really exists + the lack of a valid theory which explains how it works:
http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/What_is_the_sixth_sense


The term ESP was coined by Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton (1821-1890), a rather unusual man... and, Stalin, I am sure you will be enjoyed to know that he e.g. also brought the Kama Sutra into English language, see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Richard_Burton


Just a funny illustration...

Hello martijn, Smile

Thanks for the links ! I found a verse of ancient tamil poet , namely tholkapiyar, who lived B.C period , has explained about 6 senses in his poem. Hence, i raised this question.

Here is his poem in english fonts.
"ondrarivu athuve utrarivu athuve
irandari athuve athanodu naave
moondrarivu athuve avatrodu mookae
naangarivu athuve avatrodu kanne
aintharivu athuve avatrodu seviye
aararivu athuve avatrodu maname'


Translation is here:
'Touch' is the first sense.
'Taste' is the second sense.
'smell' is the third sense.
'sight' is the fourth sense.
'sound' is the fifth sense.
'mind' is the sixth sense.

- From the ancient book 'Thokapiam'.

As said it in this poem, it should be chronological order.
Some details about this ancient tamil poet are here. He is the poet lived before the CHRISTIAN era.

Another ancient tamil poet , who is 2000 year old has mentioned about 5senses in many places of his poem. His name is thiruvalluvar.
Below is the link. Just use the Ctrl + f from key board and find the word 'sense' in the following link page. It is easy to see his usage of this word 'sense' as well. some interesting fact is that metaphorically he convey his message by mentioning some simile in one of his verse, where he describes in one verse that '. . . such peoples are same as one sensed tree'. That is the touch sense. some reptiles lacks hearing sense.

Hence, THe founder of this idea could be tholkapiar, being a poet of before the christian era as well. Aristotle and tholkapiar are seemed to be contemporary poets. but, still if any one find the eldership of this among this both
, it would be great Smile Thanks

Hi Stalin,

Thanks for explaining your question.

By the way, regarding your translation... you mentioned 'taste' twice (as the 1st and 2nd sense). A translation mistake...?

Hello martijn, Smile

yes martijn, i corrected that mistake promptly before your message. Touch is the first sense. plants and trees has first sense. it is mentioned by ancient tamil poet. tiruvaluvar. Thus, Tholkapiyar has written about senses in unique order.
