Barbara Saunders is Research Professor in the Department of Anthropology, University of Leuven, in the Netherlands. Jaap van Brakel is Professor of Philosophy, and Research Council, University of Leuven, in the Netherlands.
Saunders characterizes the book as a movement from a 'homogeneous,
hierarchical' to a 'heterogeneous, peas-in-a-pod' understanding of
color, and, indeed, the profusion of approaches contained in the
volume indicates that there are many ways to approachthe subject.
