Synopsis: In five wide-ranging essays, A. David Napier explores the ways in which the foreign becomes literally and metaphorically embodied as a part of cultural identity rather than being seen as something outside it. Pre-classical Greece, Baroque Italy, and Western postmodernism are among the artistic domains Napier considers, while the symbolic terrain ranges from Balinese cosmography to body symbolism in biomedicine.

About the Author: A. David Napier is Associate Professor of Art and Anthropology at Middlebury College and Fellow in Medical and Psychiatric Anthropology at the Harvard Medical School. He is the author of Masks, Transformation, and Paradox (California, 1986).
