WALLEN, Martin

Regular price $40.00 Sale

By juxtaposing the well-known critical works of Wordsworth and Coleridge with lesser-known works such as Schelling's Yearbooks of Medicine and Thomas Beddoes' medical treatises, Wallen illuminates the central role medicine played in redefining the human being's relationship to society and nature, part of the cultural revolution that began in the nineteenth century.
