Gustar. Like


"Gustar, en general, ejercitar el sentido del gusto, recibir la impresión, aun sin voluntad deliberada, o sin reflexión posterior. El catar es determinante para gustar y saber lo que se gusta; o por lo menos denota que de la impresión experimentada tenemos un sentimiento reflejo, una idea, un principio de experiencia. De aquí que sapio, para los latinos, equivaliera translaticiamente a sentir rectamente y por ende el sentido del sapere (saber) en italiano, que equivale a doctrina recta, y el prevalecer de la sapiencia sobre la ciencia".

To like, is in general, to exercise taste, get an impression, even not on purpose, and without further reflection. To taste is critical to like and know what you like, or at least indicates that we have printing reflects about the impression you have experimented ,a feeling, an idea, a principle of experience. That´s why, the meaning of the word Sapio for latin people, is to feel honestly and therefore the meaning of Sapere (to know) in Italian, is the equivalent to straight doctrine, when the wisdom prevails over science.
