9780822326823: Osler's A Way of Life and Other Addresses, with Commentary and Annotations

Sir William Osler (1849–1919) had a long and distinguished career as a physician and professor at McGill University, the University of Pennsylvania, the Johns Hopkins University, and finally, as the Regius Chair in Medicine at Oxford University. Over the course of his professional life, Osler gave many addresses—mostly to medical students—on medical ethics, medicine and the humanities, the relationship between the medical practitioner and the patient, and, as the titular essay makes clear, on the “way of life” he advocated for the ethical physician. He remains an inspiration to many contemporary medical practitioners; there are active Osler Societies throughout the world.
While Osler’s talks were frequently published during his lifetime and they have been published individually and in different compilations since his death, none contain the over 1500 annotations that appear here, notes that serve to explain the many philosophical, biblical, historical, and literary allusions contained in Osler’s writings.
This thoroughly explicated selection of Sir William Osler’s writings will be cherished by physicians, medical students, nurses, philosophers, theologians, and ethicists in this—and future—generations.

From the Publisher:

“This book enables our society and those to come to benefit from the wisdom of one of the greatest physicians of all time, Sir William Olser. For over a century Osler has been recognized as a force for the humanities and ethics in medicine and for patient-centered medicine, areas severely challenged today by the so-called managed care movement, health insurance, and governmental influences. It is a message not only for the medical profession but for all who would seek compassionate physicians who had been influenced and stimulated by Osler’s timeless wisdom and humanity. I will cherish this book in my library and heart.”—Billy F. Andrews, M.D., Professor and Chairman Emeritus, University of Louisville; Chief-of-Staff Emeritus, Kosair Children’s Hospital, University of Louisville

“This is an outstanding work of painstaking scholarship, which makes this truly great human’s best thinking readily accessible to modern students, professionals, scholars, and readers interested in medicine and the health professions generally. The volume presents a cornucopia of both personal and professional wisdom in addition to demonstrating Osler’s extraordinary erudition.”—Roger J. Bulger, M.D., President, Association of Academic Health Centers
