Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a series of intriguing essays ranging over terror, State fetishism, shamanic healing in Latin America, homesickness, and the place of the tactile eye in both magic and modernity, anthropologist Michael Taussig puts into representational practice a curious type of engaged writing. Based on a paranoiac vision of social control and its understanding as in a permanent state of emergency leaving no room for contemplation between signs and things, these essays hover between story-telling and high theory and thus create strange new modes of critical discourse. b /b b i The Nervous System /i /b will appeal to writers, scholars, artists, film makers, and readers interested in critical theory, aesthetics, and politics.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 195-199) and index.
