Abstract

This essay asks how teachers and pedagogues of the blind regarded the relation between blindness and sense substitution in the latter half of the nineteenth century. The essay provides an account of the concept of Sinnesvikariat and compares its inner sensorial implications with the adaptation of blindness to new, external forms of sense compensation.
