"Sentics: The Touch of Emotions" by Dr. Manfred Clynes introduces a pioneering approach to understanding emotions through bodily sensations and movements. Published in 1977, the book explores how emotions are expressed and felt physically, proposing that specific patterns of touch and movement can evoke and communicate emotional states.

Dr. Manfred Clynes, a neuroscientist and musician, presents his theory of "sentics," which suggests that emotions can be understood as a form of sensory feedback that influences our perceptions and behaviors. He discusses experiments and observations that support his theory, demonstrating how bodily responses such as gestures, posture, and touch convey emotional meaning.

"Sentics" offers insights into the intersection of neuroscience, psychology, and somatics, challenging traditional views of emotions as purely psychological phenomena. It remains influential in fields studying human emotions, communication, and the mind-body connection.
