The senses are the first original connections with the world. They remind us that we are forever linked to external reality. The senses and sensitivity are the ways that take us to perceive reality. Above all it is a question of preventing the senses from being reduced to simple instruments, to operational mechanisms, to means of connection. The action of the senses is never neutral and ineffective: or it never leads towards the growth of the person in respect of the truth, on the contrary, it leads towards the non-truth, towards the deformation and counterfeiting of the self. The call to cultivate the senses one by one, for a conquest of a real affective maturity, can only conclude with the proposal of a solid formative itinerary of sensitivity. This paper focuses on some fundamental concepts for an adequate formation of sensitivity. Sensitivity is essentially an emotional orientation, impressed by the experience of the subject’s inner world in distinct areas of the personality, towards something good. For this reason, it is important that every human being take on the management of his own senses with a sense of responsibility, it is a responsibility that nobody can delegate to anyone. Only with this condition the formation of senses or sensitivity can start.
