The Language of the Heart, 1600-1750

Couverture
University of Pennsylvania Press, 29 janv. 1997 - 273 pages

The Language of the Heart presents a study of images less concerned with the tally of external figures of nature than with the construction of human physiology—and human nature itself. It is at once a work of rigorous historicist examination and a book of immense relevance to modern readers living in a new "cardiocentric" age.
