Description - Embodiment, Expertise, and Ethics in Early Modern Europe: Entangling the Senses by Marlene L. Eberhart

Embodiment, Expertise, and Ethics in Early Modern Europe highlights the agency and intentionality of individuals and groups in the making of sensory knowledge from approximately 1500 to 1700. Focused case studies show how artisans, poets, writers, and theologians responded creatively to their environments, filtering the cultural resources at their disposal through the lenses of their own more immediate experiences and concerns. The result was not a single, unified sensory culture, but rather an entangling of micro-cultural dynamics playing out across an archipelago of contexts that dotted the early modern European world-one that saw profound transitions in ways people used sensory knowledge to claim ethical, intellectual, and practical authority.
