English | EPUB | 2020 | 202 Pages | ISBN : 9811056390 | 17.8 MB
This book explores pain in a number of ways. At the heart of the book is an extension of Melzack’s neuromatrix theory of pain into the social, cultural, and economic fields. Specific assemblages involving varied institutions, flows of capital, encounters, and social and economic structures provide a framework for the formation of pain, its perception, experience, meaning, and cultural production.
