In this captivating book Anthony Synnott explores a subject which has been woefully ignored: our bodies.
He surveys the history for thinking about the body and the senses, then focuses on specific themes: gender, beauty, the face, hair, touch, smell and sight.
He concludes with a review of classical and contemporary theories of the body and the senses.
Thinking about the body will never be the same after reading this book.
