This chapter identifies the occlusions that are created by current organisations of knowledge for Renaissance texts. It argues that the post-Cartesian segregation of cognition from corporeality prevents one from stopping the connection between aesthetic practice and physiological concept in the Renaissance. The chapter then tries to determine whether passionate and argumentative poetic expressions provide happiness that is both intellectual and primeval.

Keywords:   occlusions, organisations of knowledge, Renaissance texts, post-Cartesian segregation, aesthetic practice, physiological concept, poetic expressions, happiness
