Inhaltsangabe

Imaginative and insightful, Seeing Voices offers a way into a world that is, for many people, alien and unfamiliar - for to be profoundly deaf is not just to live in a world of silence but also to live in a world where the visual is paramount. 

In this remarkable book, Oliver Sacks explores the consequences of this, including the different ways in which the deaf and the hearing impaired learn to categorise their respective worlds - and how they convey and communicate those experiences to others.

Kritikerstimmen

"Seeing Voices is both a history of the deaf and an account of the development of an extraordinary and expressive language." (Evening Standard)

Intelligible, in-depth History of the Deaf

The book gives a good understanding of the development of sign language and its appearance in the world over the centuries. In part emotionally charged, in part scientifically and linguistically focused, Oliver Sachs leaves no part of his resarch out.
Jonathan Davis' style of reading matches the content of the book very well.
