Abstract

This essay aims to stimulate a reawakening of interest in the writings of the physician Richard Asher (1912–1969), who is now best known for coining the term “Munchausen’s syndrome.” Asher’s essays are as relevant now as when first published. His articles were a model of clarity, wit and elegance: he argued consistently for precision in thought and expression, for logic in clinical thinking, and for evidence in treatment.
