Culture and the Senses

Kathryn Linn Geurts

University of California Press

This chapter is concerned with how well-being is integrally bound up with sensory experience and sensory engagements, developing the ideas that were introduced in the previous chapter by directly addressing different kinds of illnesses and afflictions, which include the loss of certain sense modalities. It lays out some background information on illness concepts and then provides an example of a certain affliction that involves the “sense of speech” and feelings in the mouth. The chapter also studies the somatic and sensory mode of attention that involves an “aesthetic of the cool.”

Keywords:   well-being, sensory experience, sensory engagements, sense modalities, illness, sense of speech, mode of attention, aesthetic of cool
