Learning from the Wood Mouse

EOne of the problems for humans, and for the planet, isthat we have isolatedourselves from our ecosystem. Yet, our activity impacts on the global climate and on habitats. Unlike Apodemus sylvaticus, we destroy more of our forests than we plant, and we deplete the worlds fresh water with our increasing demand for crops and our unregulated world trade.Is this really the best we can do with our 'intelligence'? Or have we much to learn from the wood mouse?

The NHS Saved My Life

ERay Noble tells how the NHS saved his life and considers the benefits of the British National Health Serivice. He argues why markets alone are insufficient to meet needs. The NHS is already being adversely affected by Brexit with worstenng staff shortages leading to delays and longer waiting lists. The NHS has been starved of adequate finding, and public service provision has been blighted by an eroneous faith in markets as a miraculous solution to meeting needs.

Dialogue with Samuel Shem - House of God Revisited

ERay Noble talks to Samuel Shem, the acclaimed author of The House of God. The House of God, published in 1978, has in many ways become a cult book in the medical profession. Itfollows a group of medical interns at Beth Israel Hospital over the course of a year in the early 1970s, focusing on the psychological harm and dehumanization caused by their residency training. For this dialogue we took the opportunity to catch up with Samuel Shem when he visited Oxford last year. We hope to have a more extensive interview with Samuel Shem in the near future.
