Abstract

What do the delineations of consciousness owe to disease? Might we see, in the earliest examples of performative art, traces of dis-ease giving rise to performance and art itself? And what do we make of recent discoveries that certain modes of disease can influence our states of mind, our beliefs, consciousness itself? Does our development as human beings — from distant past to present day — owe far more to disease than we might imagine?
