This chapter argues for the full integration of the history of the senses within the history of emotions. The senses are shown to be contingent and historical, and directly tied to a broader conceptual language of ‘feeling’. The chapter explores the connection of sensation and evaluation, focusing on the particular questions of callousness and pain. New historical methods are sought via contemporary brain- and neuroscience. This culminates in an attempt at critical rapprochement between the history of emotions and neurohistory, and an outline of the new turn to experience in historiography.
