«Ser médico y ejercer l. a. medicina, como bien decía Maimónedes, "es una ciencia y es un arte, pero ante todo, es un compromiso personal". Es por ello que "saber hacer de médico" exige unas destrezas personales y unas habilidades que deben aprenderse a lo largo de l. a. vida profesional, pero ante todo y sobre todo, requiere unas actitudes vitales que marcan los angeles diferencia entre el mero profesionalismo y el verdadero MÉDICO, escrito con mayúsculas.»«Este texto supone una visión diferente de cómo entender al hombre sano, al enfermo y de cómo ayudarle en los angeles resolución de sus dolencias. Sin ser un libro técnico, es inevitable que se escapen algunos conceptos y perspectivas de análisis que para el lector atento pueden serle de utilidad. Para el resto de los lectores que no sean médicos, puede ser también útil contemplar los angeles dimensión humana de un profesional que está a l. a. cabecera de su enfermo. Solo a través del conocimiento se puede llegar a los angeles comprensión.» Julio Zarco

Die Beiträge umfassen Stationen, Situationen, Reflexionen und sorgfältig recherchierte historische Beiträge eines begabten, feinsinnigen Menschen, der lebensklug die ihn umgebende Welt erfasst und dabei geradezu geschmeidig und geschickt das Werkzeug der Sprache benutzt. Daraus entsteht ein reiches Kaleidoskop, das einen lesenswerten Überblick über Schärs Schaffen bietet.

Molto si parlò di questo libro, quando apparve nel 1979. Ma allora notando soprattutto ciò che Sciascia vi cube della realtà pubblica che lo circondava: l’Italia come paese «senza verità», dal caso del bandito Giuliano all’affare Moro, l. a. cui ombra si stende sulle ultime pagine di "Nero su nero". Leggendolo oggi, affiora in step withò con altrettanta evidenza los angeles sua altra faccia, più segreta: quella del libro dove Sciascia ha consegnato, con scrupolosa precisione, pagine essenziali sul suo modo di intendere lo scrivere e los angeles letteratura, che proprio qui viene mirabilmente definita quale «sistema di “oggetti eterni” ... che variamente, alternativamente, imprevedibilmente splendono, si eclissano, tornano a splendere e advert eclissarsi – e così through – alla luce della verità». (Parole che vanno lette accostandole advert altre, significativamente fra parentesi, dove si cube che l. a. letteratura «è l. a. più assoluta forma che l. a. verità possa assumere»). Si direbbe dunque che, in questo momento, ciò che according to Sciascia period più personale e nascosto venisse naturalmente a mescolarsi con i fatti della cronaca. Così nacque "Nero su nero", accumulandosi in step with dieci anni torbidi, fra il 1969 e 1979, ma obbedendo sempre a un imperativo di chiarezza e nettezza – libro indispensabile consistent with capire Sciascia in genere e soprattutto il suo ultimo periodo. E, di fatto, già il titolo risponde parodisticamente alla banale accusa di pessimismo che tanto spesso gli fu rivolta in quel decennio e anche dopo, offrendoci «la nera scrittura sulla nera pagina della realtà».
