"On Second Thought" and Other Essays in the History of Medicine and Science
By Owsei Temkin
Why this book?
This series of essays by a humane physician-historian who first attracted me to medical history examines basic ideas in medicine across centuries and cultures. Published when the author was almost a hundred, it raises important questions about medical ethics and the place of medicine in society from the Greeks onwards.
