Críticas:

"Cohen's book is an excellent and genuine scientific work...The book is written in clear and non-technical language, and different audiences may find it relevant for their own fields of interest." --SYSTEMS RESEARCH AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE, June 2002

"...Irun Cohen, a leading experimental and theoretical immunologist, is one of the prophets who clearly sees the limits of current dogma and who has the vision to propose new alternatives. ...we may be grateful for the cogency of his argument and the creative insight he has offered into the nature of immunity, the organization of its function, and the promise of therapeutic approaches based on new ways of thinking. He has provoked us to question the basic assumptions of immunology; I believe he has done more, by showing us the shape of its future." --THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE

"Cohen’s Tending Adam’s Garden is without a question a special book, an unusual achievement that makes special demands of attention both on its readers and its reviewers. It is full of insights and felicitous comparisons and analogies, which this reader found stimulating, memorable and even occasionally moving." --SCIENCE, 2001

Prepublication Reviews "It ranks among the best dissertations on natural philosophy that I have ever read. Aristotle would be bemused and Darwin delighted." --Gene H. Stollerman, Boston University "[Professor Cohen] has created a brilliant and iconoclastic text, that well-reflects his own broad intellectual foundations. His novel ideas will be provocative for scholars and lay persons alike...(a)terrific work." --Martin J. Blaser, Vanderbilt University "Cohen's book is a wonderful journey into the world of the immune system. The writing is original, provocative and touches on more than immunology, it touches on science itself." --Howard L.Weiner, Harvard Medical School "The book is beautiful, as I suspected it would be, full of deep thought and philosophy." --Alex Whelan, St. James Hospital, Dublin "It's TERRIFIC. Very clear, very well written, without a trace of cliché or second-hand thought. And amusing, full of good jokes and poetical statements." --N. Avrion Mitchison, University College, London "As one might have expected from such a sophisticated person, the book is very clearly written and elaborated, very attractive and full of original concepts on immunology and neurobiology. The author's international reputation is outstanding and the text has been the matter of extensive thinking and care by an obviously gifted writer." --Jean-Francois Bach, Necker Hospital, Parisnsider the whole book to be quite brilliant... The whole book, including of course the second half (On Immunity) should be compulsory reading for all immunologists." -Graham Rook, University College, London

Reseña del editor:

Tending Adam's Garden describes and explains the way in which our immune system works from a novel perspective. The book uses metaphors and examples to bring the immune system to life and explores the fundamental miracle of nature. Written in plain language for a broad audience, this book encompasses much more than just immunology, exploring more fundamental matters such as causality, information, energy, evolution, cognition and individuality, as well as the strategy of the immune system and its role in health and disease.

  • Provides a unique perspective on the immune system from one of the keenest scientific and philosophical brains in the world
  • Uses metaphors and case histories to explore themes in an accessible manner
  • Written in plain language requiring no specialized vocabulary or specific scientific background in the subject
