A project on "Review and Revision of Kent's Repertory in relation to other works" had been undertaken by Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH) earlier. Under this project, nine
chapters, viz. 'Mind', 'Teeth', 'Mouth', 'Eye & Vision', 'Ear & Hearing', 'Nose', 'Throat', 'Face',
'Larynx & Trachea, Respiration, Cough, Expectoration and Chest' have been published till now in
which the additions were mainly made from William Boericke's Repertory. The current work has been
undertaken to review the chapter 'GENERALITIES' of Kent's Repertory (Kunzli's edition) and to
make the additions mainly from the sub-chapters of C. B. Knerr's Repertory related to 'Generalities' .
This is the tenth in the series of such documentation with reference to revision of Kent's Repertory,
published by CCRH.
For this work, a comparative study of the chapter 'GENERALITIES' of Kent's Repertorium Generale
was done with the sub-chapters of C. B. Knerr's Repertory related to 'Generalities', i.e. Rest, Position, Motion; Nerves; Time; Temperature and Weather; Attacks, Periodicity; Locality and Direction;
Sensation in general; Tissues; Touch, Passive motion, Injuries; Stages of life and Constitution.
Additions of new rubrics/sub-rubrics/medicines were recommended for inclusion in the chapter
'GENERALITIES' after verifying the same from the source books like Hering's Guidingsymptoms,
Allen's Encyclopedia, Materia Medica Pura, etc. keeping in view Kent's philosophical background
and plan of construction of his repertory. Besides, some of the medicines have also been included
from other sources like 'Drugs of Hindoosthan' by S. C. Ghose and 'Boger's additions to Kent's
Repertory' by C. M. Boger supported by the clinical experiences of the experts. These additions are
indicated through the respective superscripted numbers.
The initial alphabet of the first medicine under a rubric has been shown in capital letter. The
initial alphabets of the first grade medicines are given in capital letters while the initial alphabets
of second and third grade medicines are not in capitals. An extracts from the book is given below
to show the presentation of medicines and their gradations under the rubrics.
