Un/Knowing Bodies brings together leading international authors from across the social science disciplines to explore contemporary re-theorizing of bodies as known, knowing, and unknowing. The volume is based on a colloquium funded by The Foundation for the Sociology of Health and Illness. Chapters present cutting-edge research on ageing, disability, and biomedicine, together with original philosophical debate about the body and embodiment. The book offers exciting and creative approaches to researching disembodiment and to the practice, organization, and conduct of care.
