The Mystery of Being Human

God, Freedom and the NHS

by Raymond Tallis


In his latest collection of essays, author, physician and humanist philosopher Raymond Tallis meditates on the complexity of human consciousness, free will, mathematics, God and eternity. The philosophical reflections are interrupted by the fiercely polemical essay 'Lord Howe's Wicked Dream', in which Tallis exposes the 'institutionally corrupt' deception intended to destroy the NHS.


Raymond Tallis is one of the very few contemporary thinkers whom I would unequivocally call a genius - Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday
