FORUM: Learning the senses, learning through the senses: Anthropology of sensory perceptions

New Book (in French)!
Vincent Battesti & Joël Candau (eds.), 2023 — Apprendre les sens, apprendre par les sens : Anthropologie des perceptions sensorielles, Paris, Éditions Pétra (series Univers sensoriels et sciences sociales), 598 p. (24 contributors)
ISBN : 978-2-84743-314-2

With twenty chapters drawn primarily from anthropology, but also from sociology, psychology, neuroscience, primatology and archaeology, this book offers a vast panorama of the ways in which human beings share the sensory. It argues that discovering and learning about the world through the senses implies neither radical cognitive relativism, nor the confinement of each individual in a singular Umwelt, and that sensory and multisensory learning is always culturally modulated. We learn the senses, we learn through the senses.
