The Culture of Pain

A commentary about medical knowledge and comparing it to pain as defined in western literature and culture drawing on history, art, literature, psychology, and medicine.  Morris challenges our thinking about the pain experience as shaped by individuals and cultures, from tortured victims of the Inquisition to the Nazi death camps, the phantom limb pain of amputees and those living with chronic illness such as arthritis, disability, cancer and AIDS.
