L. S. Jacyna

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"Dr. Jacyna is one of the leading scholars in the new research program exploring the history of the brain sciences, helping to reconstruct an important story for our time. In Lost Words, he demonstrates the combination of scholarly and intellectual qualities that specialists have come to expect from him. This is state-of-the-art history of science."--Mark S. Micale, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

"Lost Words constitutes a new contribution to the field in that it draws attention to hitherto neglected aspects of the classical literature on aphasia: for example, the way in which the medical author functions in these texts, the deployment of metaphors and diagrams, and the rhetorical use of previous texts. The book presents a set of strategies for reading not only texts about aphasia but also medical literature in general."--Kurt Danziger, Professor Emeritus, York University
