Irvine H. Page, M.D. by Edward D Frohlich( Visual )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This videotape focuses on the professional career of the fascinating physician and researcher, Irvine H. Page. It deals in an ad hoc fashion with the way Page became involved somewhat ingenuously with a number of areas and discoveries within internal medicine and physiology, particularly with brain chemistry and an understanding of the cardiovascular system. A clear purpose and consistency is lacking in the presentation, but several aspects of Page's career and certain insights into his philosopy of life are apparent. His life reveals that significant achievements often occur not because of shrewd, bureaucratic planning, but because creative individuals like Page take advantage of their opportunitiesand infuse and transform accepted ideas and practice by their own unique, somewhat maverick ideas
