review Everything in Its PlaceEverything in Its Place

Everything in Its Place review ¹ 3 Eurological case histories his fascination and familiarity with human behaviour at its most unexpected and unfamiliar Everything in Its Place is a celebration of Sacks's myriad interests all told with his characteristic compassion erudition and luminous prose From the celebrated case history of Spalding Gray that appeared in The New Y Before you read Familiarize yourself with the word postencephalitic This is one word I noticed showed up several times throughout As a science major I greatly appreciate Sacks attention to the minute biochemical details when it comes to medical curiosities I m amazed at his ability to be so technical yet still write without sounding pompous He truly presents himself as a polymath which can either be inspiring or intimidating It bordered sometimes for me but overall he inspires me to learn instead of intimidating me into thinking ugh I could never know this much With my own ventures in mind the Clinical Tales then was thus my favorite section overall with the Humphry Davy essay getting an honorable mention Shame I ve never heard of his story before So interesting Sacks did a fantastic job depicting through Davy s life how science can have passion and be romanticized and poetic though Sacks writing itself presents thisIsland of Stability was also very good I think I personally possess a curiosity for what already exists This is a mindset I wish I didn t possess my tendency to say Why What s the point So while interesting to read of the INVENTION not discovery of new elements I kept thinking Why all the effort For what Coincidentally Sacks commented toward the end One can never tell in advance what the practical use of anything new might be I ll have to keep this in mind as I go on myselfSeveral times he touched on the nature of booksreading Libraries Reading the Fine Print Life Continues So these are my next favorites I appreciate being encouraged to pick up that dusty esoteric book way in the back of the library Sacks did this and he obviously found ways to use it in his life even if just to mention the books titles in his essays I ll never have such use for the dusty books I read Me I ll read a book and forget everything about it the next week But I still desire to read it for joy it brings in the moment I believe Sacks understood this and encouraged this Reading just to read I must admit even as a bibliophile and someone who personally forbids herself to post too much of my life online I felt he was a little gripe y about the rise of technology and ebooks He said he didn t want an ereader even though it could have benefited him As with everything it reuires using it purposefully and with good intention But this may be an argument that someone will run away with unless they already have a partial stance against it to begin with Maybe that s why Sacks was staunch in his complaintsSome other essayscommentsThat dreams can be a suggestion for diagnosis Neurological Dreams Amazing idea that I wouldn t mind to be true but I find fantasticalNot that I ve read much on it but I was a vague believer in NDE s and OBE s He pretty much obliterated the authenticity of those Seeing God in the Third Millennium But again the details were amazing about how the brain can create what you perceive as a Godly experienceUrge was uncomfortable A sticky topic pedophilia being the cause of a damaged rewards center in the brain Sacks obviously possessed an unbiased nature to introduce this idea and explain how it works and I can respect that unbiased nessHe broke down the complexity of life and the possibility of alien life somewhere out there Anybody Out There Another idea I vaguely believed in and I felt he annihilated Arguments here even convincing than the NDEOBE annihilation Life really is too insanely complex maybe the biggest freak accident to ever be imagined and it s unlikely such a big accident could happen twice But I feel he ended the essay with considerable skepticism and ideas for why alien life may still be an idea to consider if not a possibilityKuru kinda made me want to become vegan Infected animal tissue that causes a spongy holed brain The horrorSeveral times he touched on the psychology He talked about the deinstitutionalization of mentally ill from insane asylums The Lost Virtues of the Asylum As well as talking about mania and depression or both in some neurological disorders several essaysA huge variety of topics as you see Without ever feeling scrambled I can say only one or two bored me Everything else even if
