El dolor, que l. a. mayor parte de las veces carece de justificación, posee sin embargo una historia. Los gestos de las vírgenes mártires, las burlas que acompañaron las desventuras de don Quijote, las penitencias que tuvieron lugar, a escondidas, en el inside de los conventos, las pequeñas comedias del masoquismo sexual, el teatro anatómico del Mundo Moderno, las muecas de los pacientes anestesiados, los dolores conscientes del trastorno nervioso o los inconscientes de los angeles enfermedad psychological, se dan cita en este libro. Al contrario de lo que afirmaba el filósofo Cioran, para quien period imposible dialogar con el dolor físico, todas y cada una de estas páginas abogan por ese encuentro y potencian ese diálogo. A medio camino entre l. a. historia y los angeles filosofía, este ensayo versa sobre las formas sucesivas (que no progresivas) de materialización de l. a. experiencia del daño, sobre las modalidades artísticas, jurídicas o científicas que han permitido, desde el Renacimiento hasta nuestros días, los angeles comprensión cultural del sufrimiento humano. los angeles representación, l. a. simpatía, los angeles imitación, pero también los angeles coherencia, l. a. confianza o los angeles narratividad son algunos de los recursos retóricos y argumentativos que los hombres y las mujeres hemos ido utilizando, y todavía usamos, para sentir nuestro dolor, pero también para expresarlo y dotarlo de significado y valor colectivo.
