Summary
Which concepts about humans, their physical existence, and the world are universal, and which are culturally specific and historically diverse? This volume presents sixteen case studies from a range of disciplines, including psychology and history, which delve into concepts related to the living body, the dead body, and the cosmos found in the cultural traditions of different eras and world regions, from ancient times to the present.
