Sensational Past by Purnell, Carolyn
Sensational Past: How the Enlightenment Changed the Way We Use Our Senses
by Purnell, Carolyn
 
As often as we use our senses, we rarely stop to think about their place in history. But perception is not dependent on the body alone. Carolyn Purnell persuasively shows that, while our bodies may not change dramatically, the way we think about the senses and put them to use has varied over the ages. In this witty volume, she uses culinary history, fashion, medicine, music, and many other aspects of Enlightenment life to remind us of the power of the smallest aspects of existence.
