Product Overview

In 18th-century France, matter itself?in forms ranging from atoms to anatomies?became a privileged object of study. Voluptuous Philosophy redefines what is at stake in the emergence of an enlightened secular materialism by showing how questions of figure?How should a body be represented? What should the effects of this representation be on readers??are tellingly and consistently located at the very heart of 18th-century debates about the nature of material substance.
