By Oliver Sacks,Isabella C. Blum
Con questa «storia naturale delle allucinazioni» Sacks aggiunge un ulteriore tassello alla sua «scienza romantica», capace di tramutare los angeles casistica medica in una forma d’arte empatica. E prosegue il racconto autobiografico avviato con "Zio Tungsteno": dopo l’infanzia, scopriamo così l. a. gioventù del neurologo più famoso del mondo, passata sulle spiagge della California, tra surf e azzardate sperimentazioni psicotrope. Allucinazioni olfattive, uditive, tattili, spaziali, arti fantasma, Doppelgänger, epifanie mistiche, squilibri chimici: ogni argomento viene affrontato con capacità di immedesimazione, curiosità ed eleganza innate, e analizzato sotto le lenti della ricerca specialistica, della letteratura e dell’esperienza – clinica e personale – di Sacks. Con un risultato che conferma quanto scriveva Goethe: «La scienza è nata dalla poesia».
