Testimonies: States of Mind and States of the Body in the Early Modern Period

Testimonies: States of Mind and States of the Body in the Early Modern Period by Gideon Manning
English | EPUB | 2020 | 202 Pages | ISBN : 3030393747 | 0.8 MB

This book reconnects health and thought, as the two were treated together in the seventeenth century, and by reuniting them, it adds a significant dimension to our historical understanding. Indeed, there is hardly a single early modern figure who took a serious interest in one but not the other, with their attitudes toward body-mind interaction often revealed in acts of self-diagnosis and experimentation.
