This rich collection of quotations, spanning multiple millennia from the ancient epochs to the contemporary era, is comprised of over five hundred inspirational thoughts and universal ideals enduringly coupled to the art, science, and philosophy of medical practice. These selected quotations encompass a wide breadth of keen observations and aphorisms directly linked to the history, grounding principles, and fundamental theories of medicine and surgery. The quotations in this volume have been drawn from past generations of legendary physicians and intrepid explorers of medical science as well as distinguished anatomists, physiologists, philosophers, writers, artists, and statesmen. The reader will ponder logical precepts, universal truths, and cogent words of guidance from ancient physicians and philosophers such as Hippocrates, Aristotle, and Socrates as well as be offered sage counsel from giants of medical history including Armand Trousseau, Sir William Osler, and Michael DeBakey, among many others. Additionally, the reader will hear the poignant words of world -- renowned medical scientists such as Claude Bernard, Jonas Salk, and Marie Curie. There are also enlightening tenets from celebrated Renaissance men, scientists, and innovators including Leonardo da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, and Albert Einstein. This unique collection of motivational quotes substantively addresses the pursuit of success in medical practice. Consider these quotations a daily dose of inspiration regardless of the particular discipline or specialty of medicine you have chosen to pursue. These quotations have the capacity to bring into clear focus the fundamentals and principles that are illustrative of sound medical practice, empathetic patient care, and humble professionalism. These thoughts are cognitively stimulating to ponder and at times are refreshingly witty and even humorous. In a medical world that has become overwhelmingly inundated with convoluted electronic health records and complex diagnostic services, these time-tested precepts will convey a modicum of simplicity and brightness upon the complex world in which we practice medicine.

This innovative book concentrates on the important distinction between philosophy of medicine and medical philosophy, by expanding the focus from knowing that of the first term to the knowing how of the latter. Thus, the idea of patient and provider self-discovery becomes integral part, method, and strategy at the basis of therapeutic treatment. Among the most important contributions of this volume, the definition of Central Medicine, overcoming the dichotomy Western-Eastern medicine and Traditional-Integrative approaches, is presented under the lenses of hermeneutics, with particular regards to neurosciences, psychiatry, and psychology. Evidence-Based and Patient-Centred Medicine are analysed within the debate on placebo and non-specific effects. Furthermore, the clinical research presented in the appendix investigates the patient-doctor relationship, and the interactive nature of human relationships in general, including environment, personal beliefs, and perspectives on lifes meaning and purpose. Tomasis research covers neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, and medicine. In this book, a wide array of questions and answers pertaining to these areas is presented in a clear, readable, and detailed way, satisfying the needs of professionals, students, and anyone who enjoys the exploration of the complexity of human mind, brain, and heart.
