Must-read for any student in natural sciences or history of science. More than the father of Neuroscience, Cajal's autobiography shows the breadth of his scientific curiosity and relates the lessons this early Nobel laureate took from his many and varied experiences as a boxer, soldier, physician and inventor. His narrative explains not just what he did that established his reputation, but what motivated him to do it and how he overcame obstacles along the way.
Hardcover. NY, Oxford University Press, 1st, 2013, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: Very Good, Hardcover in a bright, unclipped dust jacket. In 1628, the English physician William Harvey published his revolutionary theory of blood circulation. Offering a radical conception of the workings of the human body and the function of the heart, Harvey's theory overthrew centuries of anatomical and physiological orthodoxy and had profound consequences for the history of science. It also had an enormous impact on culture more generally, influencing economists, poets and political thinkers, for whom the theory triumphed not as empirical fact but as a remarkable philosophical idea. In the first major biographical study of Harvey in 50 years, Thomas Wright charts the meteoric rise of a yeoman's son to the elevated position of King Charles I's physician, taking the reader from farmlands of Kent to England's royal palaces, and paints a vivid portrait of an extraordinary mind formed at a fertile time in England's intellectual history.
