"97% of all generally agreed major historical accomplishments in the arts and sciences since the 14th century have been made by males born in a small areas of Northern Europe." (Charles Murray, 2003)

So no Russian literature? No Swedish scientific discoveries? Lol

The population of Spain + Portugal is almost the same as France.
>>
>>79597808
We are not.

It's hard to tell but it looks to me like Spain is vastly underrated in art in these

>>79597918
And for most of our history we were isolated from the rest of Europe thanks to the Pyrenees. It was not financially wise for merchants and even less for intellectuals in all of Europe to come here. We could not benefit from the large positive externalities of central Europe. Until we created our own center in Sevilla when we conquered the Americas. Only then we stopped being periphery.
>>
>>79597808
there are many factors, population size alone can't explain the differences, but don't confuse modern population sizes with medieval and early modern ones.

France was the behemoth of Europe, population-wise, and the difference with Iberia much larger

>the Netherlands has art and science, but no music or literature

How is Danish literature?

Does it also live up to certain memes about your country? Just like Dutch and German literature?

what are some memes about denmark?

I don't know. Maybe that you shouldn't invade it on bare feet.

this mad is bad, bordering on useless

spain and portugal with its empires had a far bigger impact and were bigger accomplishments than a rando writer, artist, or musician

CHI

>>79600555
i think it's more about science, philosophy and political works, spain was basically a barren in those areas

>He has scanned the most reputable biographical dictionaries and histories of the arts, philosophy, and sciences to find who and what, during 800 B.C.-1950, are mentioned in them. He came up with 4,139 persons and a list of events and ponders 20 persons in each of nine scientific, three philosophic, and nine artistic fields who were most extensively covered in the resources.
Seems like a shit method.
