Knowledge and pain

Esther Cohen (Editor), Manuela M Consonni (Editor), Otniel E Dror (Editor), Leona Toker (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


From the publisher: This book is a collection of new and controversial views on pain, its accessibility to understanding and its influence on knowledge. Despite contrary assumptions, the volume argues for the possibility to externalise and communicate pain through language, narrative and social contextualisation. Expressions and responses to pain are historicized and studied within several humanitarian disciplines.
