    "Since 1964, beginning with a reproduction of Jan van Eycke's St Jerome in His Study, the front cover of JAMA:The Journal of the American Medical Association has featured full-color images of renowned works of fine art as well as many lesser-known gems. Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, and hundreds of other artists have graced the covers of this eminent medical journal. For the past four decades, these images have been selected by JAMA senior contributing editor Dr. M. Therese Southgate, who writes marvelous accompanying essays exploring the background of the artist and the circumstances under which the work was completed, followed by astute commentary on the work itself. These engaging articles have been regularly rated as one of the top-read sections in JAMA by readers throughout the world. In this third volume of The Art of JAMA, Dr. Southgate brings together a new selection of 100 wonderful covers. Each painting is displayed in a two-page spread, with Dr. Southgate's essay on the work on the facing page. The volume includes works by Marc Chagall, Leonardo da Vinci, James Ensor, Paul Gauguin, Frida Kahlo, René Magritte, Édouard Manet, Edvard Munch, Georgia O'Keeffe, Rembrandt van Rijn, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Vincent van Gogh, and many more. And, of course, Dr. Southgate also includes less famous artists, treating readers to the pleasure of unexpected discovery. Lavishly illustrated, exquisitely designed, and printed on high-quality paper, The Art of JAMA is a beautiful book that will be a perfect graduation present from medical school and an excellent gift for physicians, other health care professionals, art historians, and anyone interested in art and medicine."--Publisher's website.

    Denys N. Wheatley.
    Digital : Springer2012
    Written with disarming honesty by a long-term sufferer of bipolar disorder, with more than half a century's experience of intervention and treatment, this highly personal volume traces the effectiveness of a therapy modality for mental illness that has gained much ground in the past two decades: art. The author began to use art, and in particular doodling, from 1998 as a way of externalizing his feelings. Its expressiveness, accessibility and energy-efficiency was ideally suited to the catatonia he experienced during the bouts of depression that are a feature of bipolar disorder, while as the low moods lifted and his energy surged, he completed more ambitious and elaborate works. As well as being highly eclectic, Wheatley's assembled oeuvre has afforded him both insights and therapeutic intervention into his condition, once deemed highly debilitating and taboo, but much more socially accepted now that well known sufferers such as Stephen Fry have recounted their experiences of the condition. After an opening account of how the images were generated, the volume reproduces a 'gallery' of selected work, and then offers an extended epilogue analyzing the art's connections with the disorder as well as the author's assessment of how each attempt at visual self-expression was, for him, a therapeutic intervention. Wheatley, a cell biologist who has enjoyed a full career in cancer research, has had no formal training in art, yet his haunting pictures, many of them resembling life forms, are brought to life by his perceptive, self-aware commentary. This book will be of interest to psychologists and psychiatrists among the wider medical profession as well as people suffering from any form of bipolar disorder whatever the severity.

    This book is a long-term history of how the human body has been understood in Europe from the Palaeolithic to the present day, focusing on specific moments of change. Developing a multi-scalar approach to the past, and drawing on the work of an interdisciplinary team of experts, the authors examine how the body has been treated in life, art and death for the last 40,000 years. Key case-study chapters examine Palaeolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age, Classical, Medieval, Early Modern and Modern bodies. What emerges is not merely a history of different understandings of the body, but a history of the different human bodies that have existed. Furthermore, the book argues, these bodies are not merely the product of historical circumstance, but are themselves key elements in shaping the changes that have swept across Europe since the arrival of modern humans.

    Between birth and death, many of life's most critical moments occur in hospital, and they deserve to take place in surroundings that match their significance. In this spirit, from the early renaissance through to the modern period, artists have made immensely powerful work in hospitals across the western world, enhancing the environments where patients and medical staff strive towards better health.

    "... Szczeklik writes with the grace of a poet and the ease of a fine storyteller. Anecdotes drawn from a personal immersion in art, music, and literature are woven with reports on experimental medicine and daily clinical experience. From DNA and the re-creation of the Spanish Flu virus, to contemporary research in genetics, cancer, neurology, and the AIDS virus, from "Symptoms and Shadows," to "Dying and Death," to "Enchantment of Love," every chapter of this book is alive and engaging. The result is a life-affirming work of science, philosophy, art, and spirituality"--Excerpted from notes supplied by publisher.

    "This book explores the relationships between language, music, and the brain by pursuing four key themes and the crosstalk among them: song and dance as a bridge between music and language; multiple levels of structure from brain to behavior to culture; the semantics of internal and external worlds and the role of emotion; and the evolution and development of language. The book offers specially commissioned expositions of current research accessible both to experts across disciplines and to non-experts. These chapters provide the background for reports by groups of specialists that chart current controversies and future directions of research on each theme." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

    Last Rights is a political, historical, and philosophical study of the scientific investigation of mass graves in the wake of genocides and other mass killings. In the mid-1980s, an independent group of anthropologists formed in Argentina to exhume the anonymous graves of "disappeared" victims of state repression. Since then, a number of human rights organizations have built on this model, assembling teams of forensic anthropologists, archaeologists, pathologists, geneticists, and other experts capable of documenting evidence of war crimes and identifying dead victims. In the 1990s, after genocidal violence erupted in both Rwanda and the disintegrating Yugoslavia, international tribunals called upon forensic experts from Latin America, the United States, and Europe to exhume mass graves in both countries, making the forensic investigation of human rights violations a global project. Since then, expectations have steadily grown among survivor communities, as well as international institutions and observers, that mass graves will be exhumed, evidence gathered, and bodies identified. Using case studies from Argentina, the former Yugoslavia, Poland, Spain, and other post-conflict nations, as well as reports, articles, memoirs, and interviews with forensic experts, this dissertation paints a detailed portrait of the purposes international forensic investigations serve. Courts and tribunals, transitional governments, victims' families and other mourners all have different stakes in discovering the truths buried in mass graves, and thus place different expectations and demands on forensic teams. This complex landscape of stakeholders has added a whole new set of priorities to the traditional conception of forensics as science used in the service of the law: among them the "humanitarian" effort to discover the fate of missing persons and return their bodies to families, the construction of an objective and scientific historical narrative, and training local forensic experts and authorities to deal with the legacy of violence. Yet forensic teams have also met with fierce objections from some families of the missing and other communities around mass graves. These objections pose a challenge to the universalism of global forensic investigation--the idea that forensic science can serve the same purposes in every post-conflict setting. However, a detailed study of the specific arguments behind these challenges can create opportunities to develop clearer explanations of what forensic investigations accomplish, as well as foster more nuanced and democratic interactions with local stakeholders. In its final chapters, the dissertation pursues a new dimension of ethical inquiry, asking what forensic investigations do for the dead victims of atrocity. Drawing on various approaches from political and moral theory, it first explores the ethical framework most familiar to international forensic teams: human rights. Human rights are a powerful language for describing the violations that have been inflicted on the now-dead victims, as well as the claims of living mourners. As a description of the guarantees that can be made to dead bodies, however, they overreach. Dead bodies can, however, be cared for in various ways, even when they are unidentified or incomplete. Many of the practices of forensic experts are already directed towards this care-giving relationship with the dead, an intimate and powerful attempt to reestablish the connections between their bodies, possessions, and their mourners, as well as to reverse the effects of violence upon them.

    Since the 1970s, the origin of cancer is being explored from the point of view of the Somatic Mutation Theory (SMT), focusing on genetic mutations and clonal expansion of somatic cells. As cancer research expanded in several directions, the dominant focus on cells remained steady, but the classes of genes and the kinds of extra-genetic factors that were shown to have causal relevance in the onset of cancer multiplied. The wild heterogeneity of cancer-related mutations and phenotypes, along with the increasing complication of models, led to an oscillation between the hectic search of the few key factors that cause cancer and the discouragement in face of a seeming endless complexity . To tame this complexity, cancer research started to avail itself of the tools that were being developed by Systems Biology. At the same time, anti-reductionist voices began claiming that cancer research was stuck in a sterile research paradigm. This alternative discourse even gave birth to an alternative theory: the Tissue Organization Field Theory (TOFT). A deeper philosophical analysis shows limits and possibilities of reductionist and anti-reductionist positions and of their polarization. This book demonstrates that a radical philosophical reflection is necessary to drive cancer research out of its impasses. At the very least, this will be a reflection on the assumptions of different kinds of cancer research, on the implications of what cancer research has been discovering over 40 years and more, on a view of scientific practice that is most able to make sense of the cognitive and social conflicts that are seen in the scientific community (and in its results), and, finally, on the nature of living entities with which we entertain this fascinating epistemological dance that we call scientific research. The proposed Dynamic and Relational View of carcinogenesis is a starting point in all these directions."
