This opus gathers the answers given by senior epilepsy specialists from all over the world to a standard questionnaire. The interviewees were chosen according to their longstanding international reputation and comprehensive practice of epileptology, in most cases covering periods of four decades and more. This undertaking was a sort of challenge: would it be possible to persuade these famous, experienced individuals to answer questions on epilepsy that at first sight might seem partly serious and partly silly, according to an approach the authors of the questionnaire chose to call a Proustian attitude? It was well worth a try. The acceptance of such written interviews was surprisingly quick and good-spirited. The main objective was, from the very start, to provide younger, less experienced epileptologists with an intimate insight into the bigger questions, coming from people with a cumulative experience of several tens of thousands of patients with epilepsy. All this results in a book that teaches a lot about epileptology in a very original approach.
