Hippocratic Oaths

30th May 2006

31052006_HippocraticOaths1Q.jpgIn Hippocratic oaths the physician and philosopher Raymond Tallis yokes together his diverse intellectual interests to address important questions about our well-being.

In a series of stimulating and impassioned arguments he establishes the truth about, among many other things, recent health scares, explains why patients compete for our doctors' and nurses' time; why the exploding popularity of alternative therapies is actually bad for our health; and how one man's view of the MMR vaccine influenced a nation.

Hippocratic Oaths is the summation of a lifetime's thought and medical practice, by one of Britain's most original thinkers. It will, quite simply, change for ever the way we think about ourselves and our health.
