   schema:description "The most radical image of this visceral turn appeared in the figure of the cannibal - a figure who, in popular imagination, bore a striking resemblance to the image of the philosopher." "Focusing on literature, art, philosophy, science, technology, anthropology, popular culture, and social history, Cotton provides a broad context to his eclectic subjects. Cannibals and Philosophers is a wide-ranging and lively work of cultural studies that complicates the traditional view of the Enlightenment."--Jacket."@en ;
