Abstract

In a book honouring Stanley Cohen, it may be appropriate to start with a New Yorker cartoon. One dog is talking to another; the caption reads:
There they were, sitting around the dinner table, knocking off a bottle of Côtes-du-Rhône and blathering about the Middle East – you’ve never heard such shallow, simplistic reasoning in your life – and one of them turns to me and says, ‘And what do you think, Barney? What do you think we should do?’ and all I could come up with was ‘Woof.’ I felt like such an ass.
