Self-described... the curse - or blessing - of the internet age, when anyone
can publish anything
they like. To answer the Q., this fellow uses the title as a consequence of his studying for and being awarded a 'D. Phil' (no mere doctor of medicine, then
). However, we only have his word for that, unless we wish to persue a separate line of enquiry. Like I said, modern knowledge is like a zoom lens - the closer you get, the less you see. I recall how we used to plod wearily to and fro' the turnip field, back in the old days and spend the day digging up the turnips, then stagger back to our hovels, with barely enough energy left to eat the bloody things, before falling, exhausted,to sleep only to wake up at day-break to do the whole sodding thing again... which, I wonder, is better - not much knowledge at all, or knowing everything about anything??
However, setting aside who he is, I find the calm and open-minded way in which he presents his material informative and measured. Do we think I've been hood-winked - and if so, why?
