How do hearing, smelling, and touching define our behavior? How does nonverbal communication affect how we experience the world? And how do our senses influence our common life in society? Every day, we encounter other people and new situations. We perceive our world with all our senses, and our perceptions become associated with emotions and attitudes.
The Akademienunion (Union of German Academies of Sciences and Humanities) and the Schering Stiftung cordially invite you to our four-part evening series in which you can find out more about the world of the senses and how they affect our common life in society. These events are organized in collaboration with the Museum of Communication in Berlin.
