Excerpt from Montaigne and Medicine: Being the Essayist's Comments on Contemporary Physic No matter how soon the adult reader is introduced to Montaigne he will always regret not having come earlier under the spell of this rare spirit. Of all the philosophers of the past not one makes as strong an appeal to the physician as Montaigne. He was for years a great sufferer from maladies which the profession could not alleviate and so we are, in a sense, his debtors. Like the true physician he held everything sub judice, unable to declare that the last word had been said, unwilling to speak with finality on the thousand and one things which he observed and studied. In analyzing human thought and conduct he was a model for the physician who studies pathology and symptoms, and many are the analogies between his situation, his mode of thought, his character and temperament and those of the profession.
