Inspired by the profound literary history of healing, this compelling book explores the cognitive and physical effects of words in relation to the healing process. Drawing on research in cognitive linguistics applied to medieval linguistic and cognitive philosophy, Louise M. Bishop presents a highly original and prescient examination of the intersection between medical and literary texts.
The art of healing is treated from a point of view of words and context, social needs, cognitive presence, and the material presence. Carefully researched and powerfully argued, Words, Stones, and Herbs establishes that the power of words to produce cognitive and physical effects.
