The Senses Issue
A Feast for the Senses
Our senses are the conduit to how we experience and learn about the world — how it feels, tastes and smells, what it looks like and how it sounds. In this issue, we explore our principal senses through the lens of our scholars’ teaching and research. But we don’t stop at five. Neuroscientists and philosophers now think we may have up to 33! We explore some of these lesser-known senses, along with the so-called “sixth sense,” altered states and visions.
