Aristotle coined the phrase ‘more than the sum of its parts’ to describe the human body. But are we right to think of the body as a collection of parts? And why do some cultures place the seat of our passions in the heart, others in the liver? Anatomies blends science and history in a tour of our organs, as the author compares different cultural attitudes to the body and drops in on a life-drawing class and a dissection room.
