These are case studies of people who have lost their memories and with them the greater part of their pasts; who are no longer able to recognize people or common objects; whose limbs have become alien; who are afflicted and yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents. In Dr Sacks’s splendid and sympathetic telling, each tale is a unique and deeply human study of life struggling against incredible adversity.

Описание: My predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved. I have been given much and I have given something in return. Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and adventure. Oliver Sacks
No writer has succeeded in capturing the medical and human drama of illnessas honestly and as eloquently as Oliver Sacks. During the last few months of his life, he wrote a set of essays in which he movingly explored his feelings about completing a life and coming to terms with his own death. It is the fate of every human being, Sacks writes, to be a unique individual, to find his own path, to live his own life, to die his own death. Together, these four essays form an ode to the uniqueness of each human being and to gratitude for the gift of life.
Oliver Sacks was like no other clinician, or writer. He was drawn to the homes of the sick, the institutions of the most frail and disabled, the company of the unusual and the abnormal. He wanted to see humanity in its many variants and to do so in his own, almost anachronistic way face to face, over time, away from our burgeoning apparatus of computers and algorithms. And, through his writing, he showed us what he saw. Atul Gawande, author of "Being Mortal""

Автор: Sacks Oliver Название: Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain ISBN: 1400033535 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781400033539 Издательство: Random House (USA) Рейтинг: Цена: 13690 T Наличие на складе: Нет в наличии. Описание: With the same trademark compassion and erudition he brought to The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks explores the place music occupies in the brain and how it affects the human condition. In Musicophilia, he shows us a variety of what he calls “musical misalignments.” Among them: a man struck by lightning who suddenly desires to become a pianist at the age of forty-two; an entire group of children with Williams syndrome, who are hypermusical from birth; people with “amusia,” to whom a symphony sounds like the clattering of pots and pans; and a man whose memory spans only seven seconds-for everything but music. Illuminating, inspiring, and utterly unforgettable, Musicophilia is Oliver Sacks' latest masterpiece.
