Seeing Voices - Oliver Sacks

1-5 Ready for Dispatch

With Seeing Voices, Dr. Sacks launches on a journey into the world of the deaf, which he explores with passion and insight.

Features Specs Support
Seeing Voices begins with the history of deaf people in the United States, the often outrageous ways in which they have been seen and treated in the past, and their continuing struggle for acceptance in a hearing world. And it examines the amazing and beautiful visual language of the deaf Sign which has only in the past decade been recognized fully as a language, linguistically complete, rich, and as expressive as any spoken language.

"The existence of a visual language, Sign, and of the striking enhancements of perception and visual intelligence that go with its acquisition, shows us that the brain is rich in potentials we would scarcely have guessed of, shows us the almost unlimited resource of the human organism when it is faced with the new and must adapt." Oliver Slacks
