Descripción Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, London, 1999. Paperback. Condición: Very Good. Takes as its starting point the group of concepts centred on "good" madness - and, consequently, on laughter and comedy - which were discovered and developed in the Renaissance as objects of historical study and which led to a subtle shift of emphasis in many domains such as theology, literature, law and medicine. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Nº de ref. del artículo: GOR002040379
