Amanda Bendel Professor Volker English 102 September 8, 2016 “Corner of the Eye” by Lewis Thomas Lewis Thomas was a physician and essayist. He wrote many novels about the development of language and the relationship between humans and nature. In the “Corner of the Eye” essay, it explains Thomas’ beliefs of humans really “seeing” the world around them. He believes that we look too much into what something is instead of looking deeper to study our environment. Thomas explains this phenomenon through music. He states, “The real meaning of music comes from the tones only audile in the corner of the mind,” the part of the mind that we know is there but isn’t always viewed first. Thomas wants his readers to stop taking advantage of the world around them and look for a deeper meaning in the world. Thomas used excellent examples in his essay to prove his point. Although it wasn’t written out for the reader, he was able to explain his viewpoint through the lines of his work. I found the piece interesting because he connected all different subjects to one main theme. People
