This compilation seeks to explore the ways in
perceptions of the body within society, culture, and nature
changed throughout the period from the end of the 18th
century through the 19th century through the examination of
concrete historical objects in the form of „manuals“. The
ultimate goal of this project is to shed light on the nature
of the fundamental problems within the social constructs in
which our present bodies exist.
