Abstract: 'The history recorded by the following collection of essays is the history of that area where life and thought intersect. This intersection is complex, often turbulent....[We] opted for identifying three main approaches and devoting one volume to each. The first approach...measures the distance and proximity between divinity and the human body....The second axis of this exploration...concentrates on psychosomatic relations, how the "inside" relates to the "outside."...Finally, the last approach...plays on the classical distinction between organ and function....This tortuous, fragmented and open-ended progress of essays ends...with a catalogue--itself necessarily still "in progress"--of works devoted to the history of the human body.' --Introduction
