"Kroppen och den anatomiska kroppen", i: Kroppen. Konst och vetenskap
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Book chapter
The aim of the present study is to contribute to the documentation and interpretation of the image and experience of the human body. This image was first formulated in the 16th and 17th centuries by among others René Descartes, and it was given various visual shapes by artists connected with the academies of art from that time on. The intention of my investigation is to discuss some traits of what from an epistemological point of view may be called the growth of the modern profane or rather anatomical body image. The discussion is accompanied by a contrasting section with some reflections on the body image of the old, archaic world.
