Face/On: Face Transplants and the Ethics of the Other, by Sharrona Pearl

Danielle Paciulli
At its core, a face defines who we are to ourselves and how we relate to others. Faces play a crucial role on interpersonal communication impacting how we know, understand, and believe people, and how we interact with one another. In this sense, it is sometimes hard to really “look” at people beyond their faces. Face/On: Face Transplants and the Ethics of the Other (2017) is an intriguing book written by scholar and writer Dr. Sharrona Pearl. An expert on physiognomy, Pearl delves into the multiple ethical and social dimensions of face transplants touching on questions of self-identity, and peer and social identification.
