Dynamic Materia Medica Syphilis (2nd Edition)

by Sherr, J
$100.00

Quick Overview

Over ten years have passed since the first edition of this book, and Saltire are happy to present this second enhanced edition. The Dynamic Materia Medica of Syphilis is a web composed of eleven syphilitic remedies, each approached from a different perspective, each representing a lesson in materia medica study; essays and provings, essences and toxicologies, affinities, poetry, mythology, history, analysis and synthesis are all spread over an underlying bed of philosophy. The left and right pages represent the parallel approaches of science and art. The synthesis of all these strands culminates in an exciting conclusion on the nature of the syphilitc miasm and its underlying psoric roots.

While this book is an easy and enjoyable read, it is also an exercise book for the thinking homoeopath. Many clues lie buried below the surface, mimicking the hidden nature of our cases. The reader's challenge is to uncover and synthesise this information. This effort should pay dividends in all aspects of homeopathy, from case solving to a deeper perception of materia medica and philosophy. In this new edition Jeremy includes a commentary with solutions to many of the riddles. This can be read first as a guide or left to contemplate after the tantalising end!

The First Edition info: Dynamic Materia Medica Syphilis Jeremy Sherr is one of the great treasures of our profession. He puts before us the science, while inspiring us with the art. He teaches through an elegant dance of right and left brain. The present volume is rich in this balanced engagement. It is a book of rare beauty in design thorough, which Sherr takes us on a journey of thirteen remedies well expressive of the syphilitic miasm. He does so in a manner both systematic and multidimensional. Remedies are presented with both proving and narrative. Each gives testimony to the other and greatly aids the experience of studying the raw proving material. Complementing this are poems, his and others, as well as biography, myth, movie characters, diverse literature references, and the occasional illustration. The total effect is that one gains a vivid image of each remedy as well as the miasm, grounded in the provings, mellowed and focused by narrative discussion, enriched by poetry and the analogies of literature. Very highly recommended.
