Summary:Gorbert explores theatre history's unexamined importance to Cartesian philosophy alongside Descartes's unexamined impact on theatre history. Put another way, it provides a new reading of mind-body union informed not only by Descartes's 'Passions of the Soul' and his correspondence with Elisabeth of Bohemia but also by stage theory and practice, while simultaneously itemising the contributions of Cartesianism to this theory and practice.
