DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Early modern playing companies performed up to six different plays a week and mounted new plays frequently. This book seeks to answer a seemingly simple question: how did they do it? Drawing upon work in philosophy and the cognitive sciences, it proposes that the cognitive work of theatre is distributed across body, brain, and world.

Reviews

"Tribble has produced a remarkable book, one that is well written and compelling. The science she employs is well explained and absolutely integral to her project. In an interdisciplinary area where many scholars are still trying to figure out effective approaches and goals, Cognition in the Globe presents a successful model, demonstrating that such interdisciplinary work can be of profit to all its component disciplines." - Theatre Survey
