Description - Embodiment and Experience by Thomas J. Csordas
Students of culture have been increasingly concerned with the ways in which cultural values are inscribed on the body. The unifying theme of these essays is that the body is at once a fount of symbols and the instrument of experience. This more complex and dynamic view is applied by the contributors to a variety of topics, including dietary customs, the expression of emotion, the experience of pain, and political violence. Their purpose is to contribute to a phenomenological theory of culture and self.
