Sensual Relations: Engaging the Senses in Culture and Social Theory

David Howes

Publisher: University of Michigan PressFormat: Paperback

With audacious dexterity, David Howes weaves together topics ranging from love and beauty magic in Papua New Guinea to nasal repression in Freudian psychology and from the erasure and recovery of the senses in contemporary ethnography to the specter of the body in Marx. Through this eclectic and penetrating exploration of the relationship between sensory experience and cultural expression, Sensual Relations contests the conventional exclusion of sensuality from intellectual inquiry and reclaims sensation as a fundamental domain of social theory.David Howes is Professor of Anthropology, Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec.
