Medicine has been influenced by the natural sciences and also many other human endeavours-notably philosophy, economics, art, and religion. This volume explores this forgotten relationship between disease and artistic creativity to bring to the readers an art which, when combined with sciencenot just cures, but also heals. The author, a renowned physician, covers medical discoveries in ancient times, when there was very little science, to landmarks in modern medicine, and takes the reader to twenty-first century biogenetics and molecular biology. With examples that are not onlyfascinating but also deeply researched, the volume will be useful to the entire medical fraternity and to readers interested in the art of healing. This unique volume teaches medical science as an art of healing, where modern medicine is not just restricted to science and technology.
Dr. Farokh Erach Udwadia is Emeritus Professor of Medicine at Grant Medical College, JJ Hospital and Head of the Intensive Care Unit at Breach Candy Hospital, Mumbai.
