Bibliographic note

Volume Editor and Author of Introduction ('Emotion Theory and Medical History' pp. xiii - xxviii and Chapter ('Emotions in the Early Modern Medical Tradition'), pp. 1-22. This book originated as a series of papers first presented at an interdisciplinary conference held at the Wellcome Trust in 2006. Reviews have been favourable, and include the following: 'The history of emotion, and its earlier cognate 'the passions', offer rich challenges to cultural analysts, as this volume abundantly shows. The essays take us through intricate articulations with successive medical systems, from humouralism and temperaments to experimental psychology and its laboratory protocols ' It is a volume which speaks to medicine, psychology and cultural studies as well as to the histories of science and the clinic, and one that can feed much-needed interactions.' - Professor John V. Pickstone, University of Manchester, UK '[A] tightly edited, well-integrated collection, exploring important and original subject matter from many different, yet complementary angles. Its cumulative impact is much more than the sum of its parts...this is a very valuable collection.' - Malcolm Nicolson, Centre for the History of Medicine, University of Glasgow, UK RAE_import_type : Edited book RAE_uoa_type : History
