Binger, C. The two faces of medicine
Carl Binger. The two faces of medicine
The book is a collection of speeches by the well-known physician-psychiatrist whose career has long been associated with Harvard. Dr. Binger emphasizes the human side of medicine and in assessing the relation of psychiatry to the body of medicine, finds its principal contribution lies in its humanizing influence. He discusses psychosomatic medicine, the psychological phenomena seen in cardiac patients, psychoanalysis, Freud and medicine. He reviews aspects of mental health and the social implications of mental illness. Further afield are the doctor's dilemma and a piece on Dr. Cannon of Harvard.
