`Art and the Senses is a vitally important book and applies to so many different research disciplines that I cannot begin to suggest them all. One area that will benefit immensely from the application of the findings presented in this volume is the healing profession, particularly psychotherapy and art therapy.' Leonardo Journal `Art and the Senses is no shrinking violet. Weighing in at just under 650 pages, it covers a lot of ground. There is literally something for everyone; all the essays are well written, accessible to both academic and well educated general readers and cover a huge range of history. Art and the Senses is a vitally important book.' Leonardo Reviews `This is, by any standards, a remarkable collection, which brings together a diversity of theoretically minded scholars, scientists, artists, and others.' Michael Silk, The Times Literary Supplement
