A selection of his best writing from the last six decades and compiled for the first time, On Further Reflection is a showcase of Jonathan Miller's distinguished thoughts on art, science, and many topics in between.

Actor, doctor, sculptor, TV personality, director of both film and opera—Sir Jonathan Miller's career covers a vast range of artistic endeavors and intellectual pursuits. Common amongst all of these trades, though, is Miller’s exceptional talent for writing about them. Because his work has been published in locations as numerous and diverse as his interests, On Further Reflection is the necessary gathering-together of excerpts from Miller’s best and most memorable pieces from the last six decades, and serves as a staggering indicator of the depth and variety of his preoccupations. The collection features his writing on mesmerism and neurology, art history and drama; it contains thoughts on how we interact with our own bodies, and how television changed in the wake of the Kennedy assassination. For each extract he provides a small introduction, placing the writing in the context of his work in the arts and sciences. Miller casts light on many oft-overlooked aspects of the world, and reminds us with his trademark wit and perception that to this day he is a unique presence on the cultural scene. A celebration of one of our finest minds, On Further Reflection brings together the best of Jonathan Miller for the first time in one collection.
