"Aristotle defined our five senses over two and a half thousand years ago. But in fact we have many more. In this five part series, Graham Easton delves into the Extra Senses that we take for granted. He finds out how they work and meets some remarkable people who experience these senses in a unique way." (Via Follow Me Here.) What I think is interesting about this notion is that taking an expanded view of sensory perception nevertheless leaves me still an Empiricist-- but maybe it wouldn't if one of the Extra Senses allowed me to think about square circles. There is something kind of Tralfamadore about the idea.
