'Surfaces evade easy definition', writes Amato, 'They raise classic questions of epistemology and aesthetics'. Bringing together history and art history, philosophy and natural science, archaeology and architecture, he argues that surfaces are far more than superficial facades, and that they define our relationship to the world. Structured around our increasing power to shape surfaces, the study progresses from the evolution of the human body's own surfaces and the earliest tools to the power of modern science to tailor nature.
