Description : Light, sound, taste, and smell shape our lives dramatically, but how does this happen? How can a far-away noise elicit a joyful memory or a cry? How can the smell of cookies take you back to early childhood? These powerful stimuli exist in our environment, yet remain neutral until our brain decodes the necessary information into meaningful senses. In other words, light is transformed into vision, and sound into hearing, by the brain and the brain only. Seeing, Hearing, and Smelling the World reveals the phenomena underlying our senses, with a brief discussion of what can go wrong (for example, hearing colors or seeing sounds). This book will reacquaint readers with their senses and challenge their fundamental understanding of the amazing human mind.

Description : "Smith's history of the sensate is destined to precipitate a revolution in our understanding of the sensibilities that underpinned the mentalities of past epochs."--David Howes, author of Sensual Relations: Engaging the Senses in Culture and Social Theory "Mark M. Smith presents a far-ranging essay on the history of the senses that serves simultaneously as a good introduction to the historiography. If one feels in danger of sensory overload from this growing body of scholarship, Smith's piece is a useful preventive."--Leigh E. Schmidt, author of Restless Souls: The Making of American Spirituality "This is a masterful overview. The history of the senses has been a frontier field for a while now. Mark Smith draws together what we know, with an impressive sensory range, and encourages further work. A really exciting survey."--Peter N. Stearns, author of American Fear: The Causes and Consequences of High Anxiety "Who would ever have guessed that a book on the history of the senses--seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling--could be informative, thought-provoking, and, at the same time, most entertaining? Ranging in both time and locale, Mark Smith's Sensing the Past makes even the philosophy about the senses from ancient times to now both learned and exciting. This work will draw scholars into under-recognized subjects and lay readers into a world we simply but unwisely take for granted."--Bertram Wyatt-Brown, author of Southern Honor: Ethics and Behavior in the Old South "Mark M. Smith has a good record of communicating his research to a broad constituency within and beyond the academy . . . This will be required reading for anyone addressing sensory history."--Penelope Gouk, author of Music, Science and Natural Magic in Seventeenth Century England "This is a fine cultural history of the body, which takes Western and Eastern traditions and their texts quite seriously. Smith views a history of the senses not only from 'below' but places it squarely in the historical imagination. It will be of interest to a wide range of readers."--Sander L. Gilman, author of Difference and Pathology

Description : * “Isadora’s book about the five senses is aimed perfectly at another sense—kids’ sense of humor.”—The Horn Book, starred review Caldecott Honor winner Rachel Isadora’s sweet and simple introduction to the five senses is perfect for the youngest children, who will recognize themselves in charming vignettes portraying a wide range of childhood activities. Hearing, smelling, seeing, touching, tasting--our five senses allow us to experience the world in so many ways! With our ears we hear the birds sing; with our nose we smell the stinky cheese; with our eyes we see the moon and stars (and sometimes glasses help us see even better!); with our skin we feel the rain (and learn not to touch the hot stove!); and with our tongue we can taste our favorite foods. Isadora’s lively art reveals the power and delight of each sense.

Description : The senses, or sensory modalities, constitute the different ways we have of perceiving the world, such as seeing, hearing, touching, tasting and smelling. But how many senses are there? How many could there be? What makes the senses different? What interaction takes place between the senses? This book is a guide to thinking about these questions. Together with an extensive introduction to the topic, the book contains the key classic papers on this subject together with nine newly commissioned essays. One reason that these questions are important is that we are receiving a huge influx of new information from the sciences that challenges some traditional philosophical views about the senses. This information needs to be incorporated into our view of the senses and perception. Can we do this whilst retaining our pre-existing concepts of the senses and of perception or do we need to revise our concepts? If they need to be revised, then in what way should that be done? Research in diverse areas, such as the nature of human perception, varieties of non-human animal perception, the interaction between different sensory modalities, perceptual disorders, and possible treatments for them, calls into question the platitude that there are five senses, as well as the pre-supposition that we know what we are counting when we count them as five (or more). This book will serve as an inspiring introduction to the topic and as a basis from which further new research will grow.

Description : Sensing the World: An Anthropology of the Senses is a highly original and comprehensive overview of the anthropology and sociology of the body and the senses. Discussing each sense in turn – seeing, hearing, touch, smell, and taste – Le Breton has written a truly monumental work, vast in scope and deeply engaging in style. Among other pioneering moves, he gives equal attention to light and darkness, sound and silence, and his disputation of taste explores aspects of disgust and revulsion. Part phenomenological, part historical, this is above all a cultural account of perception, which returns the body and the senses to the center of social life. Le Breton is the leading authority on the anthropology of the body and the senses in French academia. With a repute comparable to the late Pierre Bourdieu, his 30+ books have been translated into numerous languages. This is the first of his works to be made available in English. This sensuously nuanced translation of La Saveur du monde is accompanied by a spicy preface from series editor David Howes, who introduces Le Breton's work to an English-speaking audience and highlights its implications for the disciplines of anthropology, sociology, and the cross-disciplinary field of sensory studies.

Description : We know what the senses can do for us. They bring us colorful images of the natural order through sight, offer up the harmonies of the universe through sound, tantalize us with the smells and tastes in the world of culinary delights, and wrap us in the textures of the physical world. But what about the other side of reality? This work explores the untold story of the secret life of the senses, the inner seeing, hearing and smelling that take us beyond the physical realm into a higher order of experience. "In a world that is increasingly dominated by technology, it is important to reflect on the function of the five senses. Are the senses merely the portals of the material world, opening us into experience and desire, or are they a gateway beyond, an intimate opening into mystery and transcendence? This book awakens the heart from its material disenchantment, inviting us to venture beyond the threshold of our ordinary senses, to that spiritual world referred to in the famous lines by e. e. cummings: now the ears of my ears awake and now the eyes of my eyes are opened."- M. Ali Lakhani, Editor, Sacred Web and author of The Timeless Relevance of Traditional Wisdom "This work is a sensitive, poetic, often profound exploration of the inner world of the senses. Herlihy shows us that taste, touch, smell, sight, and hearing offer more than raw data about the world or fleeting moments of pleasure and pain; they can be pathways to deeper realities and higher truths, ways of approaching God. Packed with fascinating excursions into the nature of perception, cognition, memory, consciousness, and intellect, this book is a significant addition to the spiritual bookshelf." Philip Zaleski, Editor, Best Spiritual Writing series and co-author of Prayer: A History

Description : By universal consent, the physical faculties of man have been divided into five senses, -seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling. It is of matter pertaining to the faculty of Smelling that this book mainly treats. Of the five senses, that of smelling is the least valued, and, as a consequence, is the least tutored; but we must not conclude from this, our own act, that it is of insignificant importance to our welfare and happiness. By neglecting to tutor the olfactory nerve, we are constantly led to breathe impure air, and thus poison the body by neglecting the warning given at the gate of the lungs. Persons who use perfumes are more sensitive to the presence of a vitiated atmosphere than those who consider the faculty of smelling as an almost useless gift. In the early ages of the world the use of perfumes was in constant practice, and it had the high sanction of Scriptural authority. The patrons of perfumery have always been considered the most civilized and refined people of the earth. If refinement consists in knowing how to enjoy the faculties which we possess, then must we learn not only how to distinguish the harmony of color and form, in order to please the sight, the melody of sweet sounds to delight the ear; the comfort of appropriate fabrics to cover the body, and to please the touch, but the smelling faculty must be shown how to gratify itself with the odoriferous products of the garden and the forest.

Description : The ABBA Tradition is the spiritual and mystical tradition that lies deep within and behind western religions and modern cultures. It is the worldview that is the source, substance, and infrastructure of Judaism and Christianity. It is the one great tradition behind the Hebrew and Greek languages, the Old and New Testaments, ancient religions, and modern science. Whether you call it Kabbalah, the Four World Tradition or something else, it transcends the separation between the historic faiths and, more importantly, teaches a way of reconciliation and reunion. This book helps Christians discover the profound Jewish tradition that Jesus of Nazareth lived and taught, and also highlights one of the greatest Jews of all time: Joshua be Miriam of Nazareth, who first brought the Gentile nations to the holy one of Israel. Heal the wounds that separate us one from another, Jew from Christian, brother from sister – and discover the interrelated worlds of physicality, psychality, spirituality, and divinity with the wisdom in this book.
