Lives Of A Cell

The Lives Of A Cell This book is subtitled NOTES OF A BIOLOGY WATCHER , yet it takes us far beyond the usual limits of biological science and into a vast and wondrous world of hidden relationships. Computers, germs, languages, music, death, insects, and medicine are just some of the topics touched in this bold and subtle vision of humankind and the world around us. Indeed, the complex interdependence of all things is the book's provocative theme. Lewis Thomas writes, "Once you have become permanently startled, as I am , by the realization that we are a social species, you tend to keep an eye out for pieces of evidence that this is, by and large, a good thing for us."
"THE LIVES OF A CELL anticipates the kind of writing that will appear more and more frequently, as scientists take on the largest of poetry in order to communicate human truths too mysterious for old-fashioned common sense." -Joyce Carol Oates, New York Times Book Review.
