Hippocratic Oaths: Medicine and Its Discontents (Uk Edition)

Hippocratic Oaths: Medicine and Its Discontents (Uk Edition) Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"Important though [Tallis's] medical work has been, it is likely that his philosophy, and especially his philosophical anthropology, will leave a particularly indelible mark on human affairs. But Raymond Tallis's mind is at present on other matters. For now he is mad. Furious. Hippocratic Oaths is a compelling and unrestrained catalogue of his hates." Richard Horton, the Times Literary Supplement (read the entire Times Literary Supplement review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Physician, philosopher, novelist and poet, Professor Raymond Tallis is one of Britain?s foremost medical thinkers. In this book, for the first time, he brings together his diverse intellectual interests to address profoundly important questions about our well-being. Hippocratic Oaths blends philosophy, polemic, and over thirty years of professional medical experience to create a brilliant analysis of modern medicine. It challenges our preconceptions about the nature of medicine, and examines unflinchingly the disjunction between the health care we believe we are entitled to, and the difficult realities of what is possible.

In this series of stimulating and impassioned arguments Tallis looks at the truth behind current dissatisfaction with healthcare; why medicine requires us to approach our bodies in counterintuitive ways; and why the exploding popularity of alternative therapies is bad for doctors and patients alike.

Hippocratic Oaths is the summation of a life time?s thought and medical practice by one of the foremost thinkers in the British medical firmament. It will, quite simply, change forever the way you think about yourself, and your health.

Synopsis:

Tallis blends philosophy with public opinion and personal experience to address the disparity between our expectations of health care and the realities of its provision.

Synopsis:

Medicine and its Discontents. Raymond Tallis is a revered polymath and this book will establish him as a Jonathan Miller-type figure in the popular imagination.
