012 Do We Have A Sixth Sense?

Today we’re looking at the human body and our senses! What is a sense? How many senses do we have? Are there just 5 basic senses or does it get a bit more complicated than that?

As kids we’re always taught you have 5 senses: Touch, Taste, Sight, Smell and Hearing. But what if it’s not that simple? What if we have more?

Rudolph Steiner suggested we may have up to 12 senses but even his theory didn’t take into account some of the more recent suggestions of senses: Time, Hunger, Proprioception. So have a listen and let us know what you think – how many senses do you think you have?
