An extensive historical exploration of touch which lies at the heart of our experience of the world
Constance Classen is an award-winning writer and researcher based in Montreal, Canada. Her other books include Worlds of Sense: Exploring the Senses in History and Across Cultures, The Color of Angels, and the anthology The Book of Touch.
"The Deepest Sense breaks new ground not only by focusing on the long history of the sense of touch from the Middle Ages to the modern period, but also by drawing the tactile into a number of important historical conversations, such as medieval cosmology, animal-human interactions in the pre-modern and modern periods, and museology and the aesthetics of touch. This is a wise book, filled with fascinating observations, from which every reader will learn a great deal." Richard Newhauser, co-editor of Pleasure and Danger in Perception: The Five Senses in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance
