Summary/Abstract: The author ponders on differences between the organisation of the sensorium – defined as a sensory apparatus functioning as a complex operational system impacted by culture and, at the same time, one that creates culture. A presentation of diverse meanings ascribed to particular senses in different societies and of heretofore pertinent research, which makes it possible to define culture as an entity in all of its aspects.
