Losing touch

Touch_KearneyIn a new book, Charles Seelig Professor of Philosophy Richard Kearney offers a timely, clarion message about importance of the sense of touch, an essential essence of our humanness. Touch: Recovering Our Most Vital Sense (Columbia University Press, 2021) captures Kearney’s meditation on what he calls touch hunger, exacerbated by our digital age. He says that people have forgotten how important touch is, but that tactile communication—to touch and be touched—is absolutely fundamental to our physical and mental well-being. BC News | GBH Radio
