Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0745310680, Paperback)The concept of the five senses underpins all modern academic disciplines. Recent work has pushed forward the debate about their significance, and the extent to which our techniques of perception are not merely biological, but constructed and contestable. This book reflects the ways in which ordering of the senses informs law. Starting from the modern legal system's treatment of prohibitions, liabilities, properties and methods of proof and punishment, the contributors look at how understandings of the senses vary across a variety of legal areas, from intellectual property law to criminal law. It covers a range of issues including New Age travellers, consent in female circumcision and sadomasochism.
