The sixth and last of the Harvard Mind/Brain/Behavior interdisciplinary books, the most ambitious, and the most truly interdisciplinary of all. This book covers the waterfront in current pain research, from what we know about the biological concepts of pain in literature, the effects of music on pain, and even the moral worth of pain. (John Dowling)
Pain and Its Transformations is a goldmine. Never before has a single volume brought together such a large number of experts in numerous fields and tied their ideas together into a cohesive study of pain. This volume will be a singularly fecund first step into a number of promising research agendas. (Ariel Glucklich)
These essays link to each other in a way that I have rarely seen in a collection. Coakley and Shelemay beautifully frame the entire project, locating it conceptually and making clear what are the stakes for the field of religion and science. In topic, participants, and results, it is the sort of interdisciplinary encounter that the field needs if it is to make progress. (Philip Clayton)
