Anatomy Acts

How We Come to Know Ourselves1   
Edited by Andrew Patrizio and Dawn Kemp
258 pages (240 x 190mm)
Price: £12.99
ISBN: 1 84158 471 1
Fusing history, imagination and science, Anatomy Acts explores the social, cultural and scientific significance of anatomy in Scotland over the past 500 years.

The range of ‘Anatomy Acts’ is wide, setting high points of Renaissance, Enlightenment and 19th-century enquiry alongside the latest medical imaging techniques, the work of contemporary artists and poets, and specially commissioned essays on the history and culture of anatomy. The result is an original and provocative perspective on a discipline that has played a major part in the intellectual history of Scotland.
