Regina & Kristina: Ich - was ist das?

Ein Blick in den Spiegel reicht nicht aus um herauszubekommen, wer man ist. Denn mit einer Menge Schminke könnte man das Außen-Ich schnell verändern, doch das Innen-Ich bleibt gleich. Was macht das Ich denn nun aus?

A look in the mirror is not enough to figure out who you are. Because with a lot of make-up the appearance can change quickly, but the inner-self stays the same. But what then is the EGO?
The feature is the second part from the series "Philosophical Summeracademy", Kakadu, Deutschlandradio 2011.

Regina & Kristina: Dinge erzählen Geschichten

10.000 Dinge kauft der Mensch im Laufe seines Lebens – sagt eine Statistik. Ob er sie alle braucht, ist fraglich. Doch Dinge müssen ja nicht nur nützlich sein – sie können erinnern, trösten, biografische Geschichten erzählen und zum Leben erwachen. 

"Fundbüro und Wunderkammer, Küchenschrank und Kinderzimmer – die Dinge erzählen Geschichten" – das Feature läuft am Samstag, den 24. September 2011 um 13.30 auf Deutschlandradio, Kultur.

A man buys 10 000 things over the course of his life – a statistic says. It's a question if he needs them all. But things aren't always useful – they can remind you of something, comfort you, tell biographical stories or come alive.
