Summary In May 2013, 28 scholars from 19 countries gathered in Prague, Czech Republic, to explore the many complex issues surrounding pain. This unique meeting, the 4th Global Making Sense of Pain Conference, allowed participants to remain together for three days as they explored perspectives from many different disciplines -- from medicine to music; from art to medical humanities; from psychology to writing and rhetoric; from cognition to intuition. The multidisciplinary and cross-cultural nature of the conference provided an engaging forum for scholars to draw inspiration and knowledge on the nature and function of pain, as perceived through the lenses of various fields and research methodologies. This volume presents a sample of the contributions from this conference, divided into the following categories: Pain and Thinking, Contemplating Pain, Creating from Pain, and Personalising Pain
