"The arrangement as well as the style of printing, has the one object especially in view, viz, to make it as easy as possible for the eye, and through the eye, for the mind to find what is looked for."
The book contains 48 chapters, in the Hahnemannian schema -from "Mind and Disposition" through "Fever", and ending with "Stages of life" and "Relationship with other drugs." Hering interspersed several chapters on "Relation to Time" and "Relation to Space" - i.e., moving, standing, changing place, etc. Section 43 is called "Sensations Classified" and has a two page index.
He uses four signs based on Boenninghausen's four degrees:
i. Observed on the healthy
ii. Observed often and repeatedly
iii. Applied successfully with the sick
iv. Applied very often and repeatedly
A book filled with interesting information by the father of American homoeopathy. Hering's inclusion of categories such as "Relation to Space" gives us an invaluable insight into what he looked for in a case. As previously mentioned, writing by Hering is rarely seen, so the lengthy introduction to this work is well worth reading and gives us a view into the thinking of one of the grand minds in homoeopathy.
