Samy  Molcho - Territory


Samy Molcho convincingly proves how central the concept of territory is for us as humans

Many of us have experienced it: We are sitting on a Metro when suddenly someone sits down right next to us, even though many other seats are free. It bothers us. Why does someone want to be so physically close? We feel uncomfor-table, maybe even angry. Because every space that we perceive as our own area becomes territory that we want to defend; conflict and tension can result. We react just as defensively to intruders in other personal areas: our competence, knowledge, beliefs, views and ideas, and even hobbies.

Samy Molcho, one of the most renowned body language experts worldwide, shows that territorial boundaries and conflicts are not limited to physical areas, but can also extend to our mental and psychological realms. Showing us how central 'territory' is to our conception of ourselves, he provides us with fascinating ways of understanding our behaviour as individuals, as a community, as entire societies – and how it has resulted in religious wars and international conflicts.

• Territorial borders create individual and social conflicts just as they do international crises and religious conflicts.

• Fascinating insights, providing help for understanding, avoiding, and solving conflicts
