Inhaltsangabe: In this retrospective of Gerald Weissmann's best-known essays, the reader is treated to his unique perspective on what C. P. Snow once dubbed "the Two Cultures"-art and science. In Darwin's Audubon, Weissmann examines the powerful influence that the two exert over one another and how they have helped each other evolve. From listening to the scientists who gather ever year to sing at the Woods Hole Cantata Consort to looking at the influence of Audubon's watercolors on Darwin's On the Origin of Species; from comparing William Carlos Williams's poetry to his unedited case books to watching Oliver Wendell Holmes grow as doctor and as poet, Weissmann weaves a rich tapestry that will delight fans and newcomers alike.
Über den Autor: Gerald Weissmann, M.D., is Professor of Medicine and director of the Biotechnology Center at New York University School of Medicine. He has received the Lila Gruber Award for Cancer Research, a Guggenheim fellowship, and the Allesandro Robecchi Prize for Rheumatology.
