One of Serres's best known works in which he explores the senses in the history and culture of science.

About the Author

Michel Serres is Professor of the History of Science at Stanford University, USA, and a member of the Academie Francaise. He is the author of Eyes (2015), Statues and Times of Crisis (2014) all published by Bloomsbury.


Finding a voice that is brilliantly sustained, warm and assured, Margaret Sankey and Peter Cowley meet the challenges of Serres' shifts of register between prose poetry and high-frequency allusions to philosophy and the sciences and literature classical and modern. * Max Deutscher, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, Macquarie University, Australia *
Some may claim that Serres's works are impossible to translate due to their complex word play, neologisms and erratic style. Despite this, Margaret Sankey and Peter Cowley should be commended for their mammoth efforts and superb translation. * Perspectives: International Postgraduate Journal of Philosophy *
Every page is alive with rich descriptions of feeling, sensing, apprehending, engaging, living... this translation, like all of Serres' work that we have in English, is a banquet, a feast for thought... * New Formations *
There are then some wonderfully compelling, suggestive, and exciting passages in this book...a rich plea for a treatment of sensing as an always incomplete mixing of souls and objects. * Senses & Society *
