The Hydra's Tale

Imagining Disgust

In The Hydra's Tale, Robert Rawdon Wilson treats the experience of disgust not from the perspective of the disgusting object-in-the-world, but from its representation. Working through the spectrum of human response, culture, and art, Wilson teases out the assumptions that underpin the disgust response.
