Een betere kijk op de mens

Journalist-in-residence Lynn Berger spend a semester at NIAS to work on her book on care. In this Dutch-language publication, combining reportage, science journalism and personal essay writing, Berger finds out what it means to care and be cared for, where care manifests itself, and what we need to be able to take good care.

About the Book
