It will also consider the relationship of Streeter’s wide visceral application of his work to what he termed ‘the minor purpose of healing local injuries’ to which this textbook is devoted.

There is nothing inherently odd in talking, for example, about the human disaster that befell King Lear—and Lear’s gloomy problems can, of course, be of interest for a textbook of medicine . It would belong, however, to some other section of this book, linked with the psychological adversity of dejection and of betrayal of trust, with the need for clinical attention. In contrast, the huge public interest in what are called ‘human disasters’ is

Why should a textbook of musculoskeletal medicine devote a chapter to placebo theory? The doyen of pain medicine , the late Patrick Wall, wrote that the placebo phenomenon ‘seems to shake our belief in the reliability of our sensory experience’ (1992). Perhaps this arises out of the unpredictability of individual responses to therapy, especially in chronic illness where pathogenesis is uncertain; or perhaps from the recognition that therapies that could not possibly be influencing a known mechanism of disease are nonetheless effective. Mention of placebo tends to
