Preface

Personalized approach towards the patient is practiced from caraka to Hippocrates. Humoral or elemental theory can be termed as the basic concepts of temperament in all systems of medicine. It is existent in all the ancient sciences . Freud broke this trend by providing with a more psychological view of human nature . personality theories such as type , trait , humanistic, behaviourist , psychoanalytic, cognitive and psychologist theories have emerged from ancient times and continue to be presents in modern times . But still now there is no single theory can be every aspects that can explain every aspects of the complexities of human personality.

Aside from theories about personality structure and dynamics, a major area of investigation in the study of personality is how it develops in the course of a person’s lifetime and how it varies across cultures . The Freudian approach includes an extensive description of psychosexual development from birth up to adulthood . Erik Erikson outlined eight stages of development spanning the entire human lifetime, from birth to death . In Contrast , various other approaches , such as those of jung, Adler and Rogers, have rejected the notion of separate development stages. Significant difference have been found between personality development in the individualistic cultures of the west and in collectivist societies such as Japan. Cross - cultural differences may also be observed within a given society by studying the contrast between its dominant culture and its subcultures like ethnic , racial or religious groups.

Like in Ayurveda, in Siddha medicine temperament of a person acquires his or her natural character of body on the basis of three humours vatha , pitha and kapha . Homeopathy system of medicine explains miasms, the base of every disease and humoral theory is the basis for unani system of medicine.

Ayurvedic system of medicine explains prakriti in terms of sukra , sonita , i.e. Male and female hereditary factors, kalagarbhasya (time , age and condition of the uterus ) maturaharavihara (mothers diet and regimen ), pancamahabuta (influence of five elements ), influences of human race/religion, caste / family habitat , season/time age basic instincts (jatiprasakta , kula prasakta , desanpatni, vayonupatini, pratyatmanita and bala ). It covers almost all theories in the modern medical sciences . There is no doubt that Ayurvedic system of medicine provide a comprehensive , multidimensional theory of personality.

The Concept of Prakrti has remained a subject of extensive exploration in the recent past. As a result , It is now better understood in terms of its genomic and biochemical corrections and subsequent clinical applications.

This book is surely beneficial to all ayurvedic practitioner, students , researchers and all those who are interested in science.
