Anatomy Acts, How We Come to Know Ourselves edited by Andrew Patrizio

Anatomy Acts, How We Come to Know Ourselves edited by Andrew Patrizio & Dawn Kemp

£12.99 GBP

The range of "Anatomy Acts" is wide, setting high points of Renaissance, Enlightenment and 19th Century enquiry alongside the latest medical imaging techniques, the work of contemporary artists and poets, and specially commissioned essays on the history and culture of anatomy. The result is an original and provocative perspective on a discipline that has played a major part in the intellectual history of Scotland. The publication of this book coincides with a touring exhibition of the same name that opened in Edinburgh in May 2006 which draws entirely on material housed in Scottish collections.
