Lewis Thomas has been compared to a philosopher who uses the language of biology. With the medusa as a metaphor for life, he continues the exploration of the world he began in The lives of a cell. Among his offerings are essays on the genius of human error, cloning, disease and natural death, and an assessment of contemporary health care-all of it conveyed in an eloquent prose that is a delight to hear.
