Abstract:

Bodily pain and distress come in many forms. They can well up from within at times of serious illness, but the body can also be subjected to harsh treatment from outside. The medical system is often cold and depersonalised, and much worse are conditions experienced by prisoners in our age of mass incarceration, and by animals trapped in our factory farms. In this pioneering work, Drew Leder offers bold new ways to rethink how we create and treat distress, clearing the way for more humane social practices.
