Sachs was a neurologist and great thinker/writer. He wrote about his experiences as a neurologist. Fascinating books, fascinating man.
His work reminds me of Theodore Dalrymple–lucid, erudite, insightful, observant.
He died recently and I saw this nice discussion today. Died at 82, we were lucky to have him around. Another example of the contributions of Brits to culture and the arts, but also just empirical thoughtful writing and scholarship.
