Indian Medicine
trans. From German into English by Dr. C.G. Kashikar
Indian Medicine trans. From German into English by Dr. C.G. Kashikar
Description
From the Jacket

The present work aims at an orderly, and at the same time historical treatment of the Ayurvedic system of medicine. It is an English rendering of Julius Jolly's Medizin in German originally published in 1901, and supplemented by the translator with bibliography and notes covering the literary activity in the field during the next fifth years. It deals with sources, Physicians and Therapy, Theoretical conceptions, Theory and External Diseases, Diseases of the Head, Nervous and Mental Diseases and Toxicology.

The book is a model of critical research condensed with the utmost brevity of words without omitting any important detail of fact or text bearing on the history of Indian Medicine. A historical approach as has been made in writing this book is a dire necessity for Ayurvedic research work - both literary and practical. The history of Ayurveda indeed claims a better position in the general history of Medicine. The conceptions of the Physician of ancient India have played a great role in the general culture of India and have entered in many Philosophical doctrines as the basic elements. The Indian Medicine has played in Asia the same role as the Greek Medicine in the West. It has spread in Indo-China, Indonesia, Tibet, Central Asia and Japan exactly as the Greek Medicine has done in Europe and the Arab countries. It was studied by the Greeks, the Arabs, the Portuguese and the Dutch, and in the 19th century it secured a place in the scientific literature of Europe. Thus the study of Indian Medicine has taken its place in the classical Science. Throughout the progress of historical studies it has become possible to consider with greater precision the correspondence of Indian Medicine with those of Greek, Iran, Islam and China. Pharmacological value of Ayurvedic drugs has also been fixed. On this background the study of Indian Medicine presented in this book will be profitable presented in this book will be profitable for a deeper understanding of the history of Medicine in general and of Indian Medicine in particular.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me.
