Neurology and Modernity: A Cultural History of Nervous Systems, 1800-1950 (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


As people of the modern era were singularly prone to nervous disorders, the nervous system became a model for describing political and social organization. This volume untangles the mutual dependencies of scientific neurology and the cultural attitudes of the period 1800-1950, exploring how and why modernity was a fundamentally nervous state.
