What is medicine apart from being a science? What else goes on between doctors and patients? What have ideas like love, healing, and prayer got to do with twenty-first century medicine?
In this unique book, Doctor Tim Harlow shows us that there is a great deal more to medicine than we think. He helps us see how some of the important connections between doctor and patient work in surprising ways. The author sees these routine things from an unusual angle and avoids medical jargon.
He uses his medical lens to show us new questions and make us think about what it means to be human. This book will help both doctors and patients to think about the deep underpinnings of both our lives and our deaths.
Medicine and science are now under public scrutiny as never before. This thought-provoking book steers us towards a better understanding of the place of medicine in the world.
