On the Move

Author: Oliver Sacks
Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH

Release Date: 2015-05-30
Genre: Psychology

Oliver Sacks war der berühmteste Neurologe der Welt. Mit seinen Fallgeschichten hat er uns einen neuen Blick auf Krankheiten und Abweichungen gelehrt: Was bei einem Patienten auf den ersten Blick als Störung erscheint, ermöglicht oft besondere Fähigkeiten der Wahrnehmung. Mit diesem Buch hat Sacks eine von fesselnder Energie getriebene Autobiographie vorgelegt. Ehrlich und anrührend beschreibt er die wichtigsten Stationen seines Lebens – das enge Großbritannien der Nachkriegszeit, das anarchische Kalifornien der frühen Sechziger, schließlich das ewig pulsierende New York. Ob er in der Forschung tätig ist oder in der klinischen Praxis, konstant bleiben die Begeisterung für die Arbeit mit den Patienten und das Schreiben darüber. Gerühmt für seine feinsinnigen Fallgeschichten, analysiert Sacks hier seinen eigenen Fall: Er erzählt von erfüllter und unerfüllter Liebe, der Beziehung zu seiner jüdischen Medizinerfamilie, zeitweiliger Drogensucht und exzessivem Bodybuilding und von unbändigen Glücksgefühlen auf den Road Trips durch die Weiten Nordamerikas. Die Lebensbilanz eines außergewöhnlichen Mediziners – und das Meisterwerk eines großartigen Erzählers.
