Sacks O. Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat


f a man has lost a leg or an eye, he knows he has lost a leg or an eye; but if he has lost a self – himself – he cannot know it, because he is no longer there to know it. In this extraordinary book, Dr. Oliver Sacks recounts the stories of patients struggling to adapt to often bizarre worlds of neurological disorder. Here are people who can no longer recognize everyday objects or those they love; who are stricken with violent tics or shout involuntary obscenities; who have been dismissed as autistic or retarded, yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents. If inconceivably strange, these brilliant tales illuminate what it means to be human.

Sacks O. The River of Consciousness


Two weeks before his death, Oliver Sacks outlined the contents of The River of Consciousness, the last book he would oversee. The bestselling author of On the Move, Musicophilia, and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Sacks is known for his illuminating case histories about people living with neurological conditions at the far borderlands of human experience. But his grasp of science was not restricted to neuroscience or medicine; he was fascinated by the issues, ideas, and questions of all the sciences. That wide-ranging expertise and passion informs the perspective of this book, in which he interrogates the nature not only of human experience but of all life. In The River of Consciousness, Dr. Sacks takes on evolution, botany, chemistry, medicine, neuroscience, and the arts, and calls upon his great scientific and creative heroes - above all, Darwin, Freud, and William James. For Sacks, these thinkers were constant companions from an early age; the questions they explored - the meaning of evolution, the roots of creativity, and the nature of consciousness - lie at the heart of science and of this book. The River of Consciousness demonstrates Sacks’s unparalleled ability to make unexpected connections, his sheer joy in knowledge, and his unceasing, timeless endeavor to understand what makes us human.

Beaunier André The Man Who Lost Himself


THE MAN WHO LOST HIMSELF tells the story of Michel Bedée, a brilliant scientist whose work on the new element that he's discovered–sirium–has alienated him from his mother, his sister, and his wife. He cannot bear the fact that, although he loves his wife dearly, he cannot make her happy. Unfortunately, when she finds an alternative route to happiness, he cannot bear that either. Forced into isolation, he completes the formulation of the theory that will integrate the properties of sirium into a revised physical chemistry. Then, having exhausted what remains of his reasons for living, he finds himself at a loss, suspended between life and death–which appear to him in graphic symbolic form. An unusual philosophical French science-fiction novel, a precursor to some of modern-day European SF.
