A rich engaging wide ranging history of a much ignored sense, Roger Smith’s The Sense of Movement: An Intellectual History utilises philosophy and the history of science to explore the under-acknowledged “sixth sense”; the sense of movement. Smith reflects on the way various types of movement have interacted with physiology, psychology and the social sciences to create an idea of what this “sixth sense” really encompasses. He then expands his ideas to how personal awareness of this sense can affect lived experience.
