In the essay entitled "Of Skulls in a Heap and Soft Parts in Glass Jars," Gonzalez-Crussi visits a hospital in his native Mexico for the singularly vivacious celebration of the Day of the Dead - November 2 - and an exploration of the Mexican Way of
A short history of medicine by F Gonzalez-Crussi( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a brief yet authoritative 500-year history of the science, the philosophy, and the controversies of modern medicine. While this work mainly explores Western medicine, González-Crussi also describes how modern medicine's roots extend to both Greco-Roman antiquity and Eastern medical traditions. Covered in detail are the birth of anatomy and the practice of dissections; the transformation of surgery from a gruesome art to a sophisticated medical specialty; a short history of infectious diseases; the evolution of the diagnostic process; advances in obstetrics and anesthesia; and modern psychiatric therapies and the challenges facing organized medicine today. González-Crussi's approach to these and other topics stems from his professed belief that the history of medicine isn't just a continuum of scientific achievement but is deeply influenced by the personalities of the men and women who made or implemented these breakthroughs.--From publisher description

Dolor de uno, dolor de todos by Arnoldo Kraus( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En Dolor de uno, dolor de todos, Arnoldo Kraus nos habla constantemente sobre la necesidad que tiene la persona que soporta el dolor de restaurar en su horizonte vital un rayo de esperanza, un sentimiento reconfortante: sentirse escuchado, tal vez tocado.Prólogo de Francisco González Crussí."En la clínica la palabra más frecuente es dolor; transferir esa carga y asumir que llegó a buen puerto le permiten al enfermo depositarse, saber que sus dolores y miedos fueron entendidos y suelen mejorar sin medicamentos y sin necesidad de exámenes o radiografías...Como si lanzara un recordatorio a quienes dan la impresión de haberlo olvidado, el doctor Arnoldo Kraus menciona en este libro que el primer deber del médico es aliviar el sufrimiento; que el dolor no es un beneficio sino un agobio que pesa sobre el enfermo, haciéndolo más enfermo de lo que sería sin él.Que el dolor sea, desde un punto de vista filosófico, inexpresable o indecible, dice el autor, no significa que la palabra no tenga un papel decisivo para aliviarlo. La verdad profunda del dolor puede ser inefable, pero el médico íntegro que es Arnoldo Kraus tiene de su lado la experiencia que lo lleva a escribir con consciencia sobre el tema."Francisco González Crussí
El rostro y el alma : siete ensayos fisiognómicos by F Gonzalez-Crussi( )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El rostro con que venimos al mundo es una de tantas prendas que nos tocan en el despiadado juego de azar que es el destino". He aquí la premisa a partir de la cual el doctor González Crussí -uno de los médicos humanistas más reconocidos de nuestro tiempo- construye estos siete ensayos fisiognómicos: una obra única que une la curiosidad, la erudición, la amenidad y el sentido del humor para ofrecer un festín literario irrepetible."Muchos pensarán que la fisiognomía y la frenología no son otra cosa que torpes esfuerzos por construir una ciencia# Pero yo creo vislumbrar algo más: un afán que no carece de nobleza: el tenaz proyecto de comprender el lenguaje del rostro. Porque los rostros hablan, aun sin tener voz. Es como si dijeran al observador: "Déjame que te cuente un poco de mi persona y de mi propia historia: de dónde vengo; si me siento alegre y exultante, o triste y deprimido; y si estoy sano o me encuentro enfermo. Te hago saber que llevo en las mejillasla marca de un trauma que sufrí hace tiempo, o el rubor de mi vergüenza y mi natural timidez. Te señalo las trazas que una enfermedad me ha dejado. Y te cuento que, a pesar mío, porto en mi piel las cicatrices de los zarpazos de los años, o que, por el contrario, llevo conmigo el contento, el alborozo y la frescura de la juventud. Con todo y que eres un perfecto desconocido para mí, mi rostro tiene mucho que contarte; sólo te pido, por favor, no lo malinterpretes"."Francisco González Crussí
