Promotional Information

Even readers already familiar with synesthesia will find much to learn from Cretien van Campen's The Hidden Sense: Synesthesia in Art and Science. In clear and lucid prose, van Campen provides shimmering descriptions of synesthetic experiences as he explores the complex interplay between synesthesia in science and, especially, synesthesia in the arts. Although several of van Campen's stances on the science of synesthesia are debatable and controversial, agree with them or not, reading The Hidden Sense will broaden and deepen one's understanding of this fascinating set of phenomena. -- Lawrence E. Marks, Director, John B. Pierce Laboratory, and Professor of Epidemiology and Psychology, Yale University This is an extremely interesting, current, and well-written book that highlights a fascinating topic in synaesthesia research, namely the translation of synesthetes' experiences into art. -- Hinderk Emrich, Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Hannover University, Germany This is an extremely interesting, current, and well-written book that highlights a fascinating topic in synaesthesia research, namely the translation of synesthetes' experiences into art. -- Hinderk Emrich, Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Hannover University, Germany

Reviews

This slim volume provides a good introduction to the fascinating phenomenon of synesthesia in art and science.... A welcome addition to the growing literature on the subject. -Simon Shaw-Miller, The Art Book
Strongly relying on the latest scientific experiments (brains scans) as well as on a lifelong personal research on and with synesthetes (persons being able of synesthetic perception), the author manages to offer a discussion of synesthesia that is of interest for the specialists as well as for the broader public.... The author's way of arguing finds always a good balance between direct experience (the testimonies of the many synesthetes with whom he has been working for many years now) and the scientific results of cognitive and neuroscientific research (of which he is able of giving very clear and readable reports and syntheses). -Jan Baetens, Professor of Literary Studies at the Leuven University, Belgium, Leonardo Reviews
