About meI am a herbalist, and I write and teach on this subject too. I have a keen interest in the history and anthropology of medicine, in ethnobotany and in general in epistemology. I spend too much time on textbooks and not enough reading fiction and poetry. I talk (but very sparcely) about plants and humans in my blog silphion, http://www.marcovalussi.it
About my libraryDone with my technical library (almost) and english fiction, part of my comic books, and half of my books in Italian.
