It is the big questions about happiness and the meaning of life that have been
occupying the Philosopher and bestselling author Wilhelm Schmid for many years.
Together with the three clergymen of the House of One - Rabbi Andreas Nachama, Pastor Gregor Hohberg and Imam Kadir Sanci - Wilhelm Schmid will within the
framework of the series "The House of One invites..." ask the question what we have in common.

The search for love, for relationships, for example, is important to us people
regardless of our differences. In this search, a look at what we have in common, at commonalities, not at differences, helps. But what is it that people share with each
other regardless of their religion, world view or origin?

Wilhelm Schmid, born 1953, lives as a freelance philosopher in Berlin and teaches philosophy as an associate professor at the University of Erfurt. For many years he was a guest lecturer in Riga/Latvia and Tbilisi/Georgia, as well as a "philosophical pastor" at a hospital near Zurich/Switzerland. He was awarded the Meckatzer Philosophy Prize in 2012 and the Egnér Prize in 2013.
