From the cover: Using Philosophy in Homceopathy
We as homoeopaths are privileged to practise one of the few philosophically based systems of medicine.This book outlines a short history of the development of homoeopathic philosophy. It then gives a clear exposition of the basic principles on which the philosophy rests. In the third part the ways in which this philosophy is applied to the process of case taking and remedy selection are described.
This is a practical tool that brings philosophy down to earth and into the consulting room.
Using Maps and Systems in Homoeopathy
A series of introductions to the major systems and maps used in homoeopathy to better understand the various systems, to apply them simply and effectively and to understand what they tell us and what are their limitations. These books are primers and do not require previous familiarity with the systems but they are also useful as a workbook for those who know and use the systems.
"Here is a beautiful book written by an author who lives and breathes the subject - this knowledge permeates the writing making it a useful work-book for the committed student."
"Peter has quite brilliantly drawn together the threads of the higher realms of human experience and brought them down to earth to be of immense practical use in our every- day practices."
About the author
Peter Fraser was born in South Africa and grew up there, in Britain and in Canada. His first career was as a bookseller and publisher and one of the many things that he loves about homeopathy is the respect it pays to books both old and new.
He studied homeopathy with Misha Norland, Janet Snowdon and David Mundy and has been part of the Travelling Homeopaths Collective for more than ten years. He has taught and lectured in New Zealand, North America, the Balkans and in Nepal as well as in the UK.
One of his particular interests is in the proving of new remedies and he has been involved in the proving or collation of more than twenty remedies including AIDS, Falcon, Sparrow, Peacock, LSD, Heroin, Condom and Antimatter and most recently the Plague Locust.
His interest in the new remedies led to the writing of The AIDS Miasms: Contemporary Disease and the New Remedies (Winter Press) and to the Supplement to Clarke's Dictionary, an on going project to put New Remedies into the Dictionary format and which is available on the internet as are all the provings in which he has been involved.
He is writing a series of introductory books on using different systems in homeopathic understanding. The Realms and The Mappa Mundi are available now from The School of Health.
The remedies that come from substances which inhabit the Realms of Earth, Sea, Underworld or Sky have particular qualities. The remedies which move between the Realms, particularly between the Earth and Sky, have qualities in common and need to be differentiated in a special way.
Knowing the way in which such transformation is expressed not only helps to understand the transformative remedies but it helps us to define what constitutes the active, dynamic and contradictory centre of the case which is the quickest way to finding the remedies in all types of case. Peter is exploring this idea of transformation and has looked at the Insects, the Spiders, the Snakes and the Birds through its lens. He is also looking at the Trees, the Drugs and the Milks.
