Dr Pearce, who was a family doctor in the NHS from 1947 until 1979, takes a searching look at the way in which medicine is moving today, and analyses the process by which healing has moved away from its original association with the spiritual component of man to an increasing preoccupation with technology, and with cells and organs. He sees in the growing influence of the holistic health movement signs of a gradual return to the original identification of health with wholeness of body, mind and spirit. 312pp. Index.
