How do we become those who we are? In which contexts does human life develop, constitute itself, and take place? And what sets us humans apart? During a four-part event series entitled “Becoming Human – What Makes Us Who We Are?,” scientists from the fields of cognition and marine biology, anthropology and history, the neurosciences and philosophy meet artists to discuss the many different facets of being and becoming human.
Be our guest and participate, through a variety of discussion formats, in the transdisciplinary dialogue on these almost inexhaustible questions!Share this post
