About the Book

The first edition of James Tyler Kent's Lectures on Homoeopathic Materia Medica was published in 1905. Kent felt that the speech of laymen presents all sickness to the physician's mind, hence the Materia Medica must be reduced from technicalities to a simple speech. By presenting every remedy's strong characteristics, Kent shows how the Materia Medica has evolved and is used. This is one of the first instances, where a remedy picture is portrayed. Here are 217 remedies from the pen of one of the most influential American homoeopaths. These are the transcribed lectures from Kent's classes at the Post-Graduate School of Homoeopathy in Philadelphia. Though not a primary Materia Medica, there are wonderful gems to be found within. Witness the distinctive picture of the sycotic miasm within the context of the remedy, Natrum sulphuricum. The colloquial presentation leads to an easier grasp of the information. The lectures are in a simple form, explaining Kent's plan of study for each remedy.

‘A course of lectures on 217 remedies delivered at the Post Graduate School of Homoeopathics, Philadelphia, where Kent was the Dean and Professor of Materia Medica. Kent's exposition of characteristic symptoms conveys lasting impression of the remedy's essence. A must for serious homoeopathic practitioners'.

About the Author

James Tyler Kent, MD (born in Woodhull, New York, 1849) has proved many new remedies, pioneered the use of highly potentised homoeopathic remedies, and in 1897 published his repertory. He advocated the use of potencies made on the centesimal scale. Dr Kent introduced the doctrine of 'Series in Degrees' in the treatment of chronic diseases, 'Theory of Octaves' and 'Law of Vital Action and Reaction'. He laid importance on mind symptoms in chronic cases. He taught Materia Medica at the Homoeopathic Medical College of St. Louis from 1881-88, at the School of Homoeopathy, Philadelphia from 1890-99, at Hahnemann Medical College and Hospital, Chicago from 1903-09 and at Hering Medical College and Hospital.
