(p.185) Epilogue
Localization and Its Discontents

Katja Guenther

University of Chicago Press

The Epilogue returns to the theme of the Introduction, and suggests ways in which this history sheds new light on recent trends in neuroscience—not to offer a full history of the present, but to exploit suggestive structural parallels between the history told in this book and neuroscientific developments of the past decade. It suggests that a historically grounded understanding of the articulation of the relationship between localization and a principle of “connectivity” helps reframe anxieties about the place of neuroscience in contemporary academic culture, and in particular in the humanities. 92
