Tip of the Day:
In a world that prizes medical science and blames illness on factors such as genes, viruses, bacteria or poor diet, certain perplexing cases stand out.

In “The Cure Within,” Harvard Professor Anne Harrington proposes that we’re persuaded not only by science but also by stories, especially a key set of narratives that humans have told about the mind and body through history.
