あらすじ・解説

Two weeks before his death, Oliver Sacks outlined the contents of The River of Consciousness, the last book he would oversee. The best-selling 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 audiobook, 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 audiobook.

The River of Consciousness demonstrates Sacks' unparalleled ability to make unexpected connections, his sheer joy in knowledge and his unceasing, timeless endeavour to understand what makes us human.

Interesting but cluttered

It was a very interesting listen but i had a hard time flowing the connections between the various topics. Last portion focuses mainly on the evolution of scientific findings and raw data into acceptable theories which i found to be, while interesting, unrelated to the theme of the book. Enjoyed it but wouldnt recommend it.

More than Once

My first full Oliver Sacks text. Got a lot out of it but will be going back for a second listen as quite detailed in places. Will be listening to and reading much more from him from now.

A lot to take in

have to listen to this more than once, too much for my little brain to take in
