The project "Review and Revision of Kent's Repertory in relation to other works - Additions to Boericke's Repertory" on chapter Mind is based on Kent's Repertorium Generale by J. Kunzli which contains the Kent's Repertory as well as the rubrics and drugs confirmed from various references and suffixed with a number (additions in Chapters "Mouth & Teeth" have been incorporated in Repertory of Homoeopathic Materia Medica by Dr. J.T. Kent).
A comparative study of Kent's Repertorium General with O.E. Boericke's Repertory is undertaken and addition of new rubrics/ drugs were recommended for inclusion after verifying the same from the known sources like Hahnernann' s Chronic Diseases/Materia Medica Pura, Allen's Encyclopaedia of Pure Materia Medica, Heling's Guiding Symptoms, Clarke's Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica (See Bibliography) etc., keeping in view Kent's philosophical framework. Besides these, some of the rubrics/drugs have also been recommended for inclusion from other sources like T.F. Allen's Hand book of Materia Medica, Farrington's Clinical Materia Medica, Talcott's Mental Diseases, Ghose' s Drugs of Hindoosthan etc. The additions incorporated in this work also contain clinical experiences of the Sub-committee on Literary Research and experiences gained in the Drug Proving and Clinical Verification Project under this Council. The recommendations of the research workers are scrutinised by the Literary Sub-committee consisting of experts in the field of Repertory. On the basis of their approval, a manuscript is finally prepared. For the sake of propriety and distinction, these additions have been suffixed with numerical numbers signifying the source. The Kunzli's repertory lists 72 sources. For the purposes of uniformity in enlarging the scope of Kent's Repertorium Generale serial numbers depicted in the list of sources by Kunzli in the Kent's Repertorium Generale have been retained and for the sources which are not included therein new numbers have been given after the last serial number, details of which appear in this work (S. No. 24 is missing in Kunzli's list).
The additional drugs which appear in italics in Boericke 's Repertory have been shown in italics and rest all have been shown in ordinary type (lowest grade). New rubrics have been indicated with an asterisk. In this text there are black points which have been entered by Kunzli to relay his own therapeutic experiences. A black point entered after a drug means that the therapeutic efficacy of a drug has been frequently proven. The black point after the symptom underscores the therapeutic importance of the rubric and often points directly to the drug in question, or at least to the general area. These therapeutic hints both broaden and enrich the Kentian homoeopathic school, which was evolved over Pierre Schmidt and Kunzli. A list of each of the quoted authors and a list of remedies with their abbreviations are also added to facilitate identification of authors and drugs clearly.
