MA assignment @ uni.lu 2.2011 with Professor Portante
At the beginning of the 21st century, scientific endeavours are trying to establish what it means to be human. A number of research projects, initiated by the European commission attempt to get to the source of what makes us human.
This global understanding of the human mind is clearly a very long way oﬀ. However, in order to move forward, there is a crucial need for interdisciplinary work to generate concepts that make sense not only at a particular level of analysis, but also within a broader ‘system of understanding’ that encompasses these diﬀerent levels (European Commission, 2007, p. 3).
