A Study of Hahnemann's Organon of Medicine (Based on English Translation of the 6th Edition by Dr William Boericke, M. D.)
This book is the key to the mysterious world of homoeopathy, encoded in the Organon of medicine by Master Hahnemann. The study and understanding of the Organon of medicine has- always been a tedious work for every homoeopath. The complexity of which, has been beautifully exemplified by Dr Arya. The aphorisms and various sections of the Organon of Medicine have been meticulously explained with flow charts and diagrams for a thorough understanding of this unsurpassed work of the Master.
This book is based upon my experiences as a student, practitioner and teacher of homoeopathy. The difficulties I faced in understanding the teachings of our master, . my discoveries about the applicability of these teachings in clinical practice and my efforts to communicate the concepts in simple language without sacrificing the exact wordings and accuracy in this immortal work of Hahnemann, become the basis of this work.
Hahnemann’s Organon of Medicine as a subject is taught at different levels in our institutions. This book is designed especially for students who are newcomers to medicine in general and homoeopathy in particular and who have language and psychological barrier with regard to this subject. I have therefore omitted detailed discussion of aspects that may frighten the beginners. I have used flow charts, diagrams and examples to communicate concepts and areas covered in each of the 291 aphorisms of the Organon and long unwinding Introduction and a brief but terse Preface to the 6" edition by the Master. I have attempted here to travel from simple to complex approach in terms of their discussion.
It is my belief that a sound knowledge of philosophy of our school of Medicine is essential for undertaking practice, teaching and research studies. It should not be taken as acommentary to Organon like that of my revered teacher Dr. B. K. Sarkar or Lectures on Homoeopathic Philosophy by Dr. J.T. Kent, but merely an attempt to bare open what has been stated in various aphorisms and the foot-notes that are appended to some of them.
I am grateful to a number of people who have initiated me into this great science and also those who have helped me in writing of this book. Iam immensely thankful to Kuldeep Jain, the CEO of the B. Jain publishers who is holding the flagship of publishers of homoeopathic books worldwide, and is son of my old friend Shri Prem Nath Jain, persuaded me write a book on Organon in a simple language for the benefit of students.
I am thankful to my long time friend and associate Professor Dr. Girendra Pal, former Principal of Rajasthan Homoeopathic Medical College, Jaipur, who has been teaching this subject for now several decade, who encouraged me to write this book and also reviewed some parts of this work and gave me valuable suggestions.
I am thankful to my Professor of Medicine and the Vice Principal Dr. Maneesha V. Solanki of D.S. Homoeopathic Medical College, Pune, for her enormous efforts into editing of this book and in providing with valuable comments on its contents.
My colleagues in the Department of Repertory and Organon and homoeopathic Philosophy of homoeopathic medical colleges all over India, who have been instrumental in crystallizing some of these teachings contained in the master piece work of Hahnemann.
My students all over the sub-continent have taught me how to teach repertorisation and Organon and homoeopathic philosophy and to integrate them at various levels from case-taking to the finally closing of a case. This book is an outcome of the feedback I have received from them over the years. How and at what stage a concept should be taught, I have learnt from my students. I thankfully acknowledge their contribution to this book.
I also thank my son Dr. Manish Arya, Associate Professor in Repertory at the Padmashree Dr. D.Y. Patil Homoeopathic Medical College, Pimpri, Pune, for going through the manuscript carefully and for his hesitating but firm comments and suggestions.
I am indebted to my wife, Dr .Indu Arya for bearing the brunt of all my antics and my disappearing episodes from the home when she needed me the most and for looking after my tribe.
I am thankful to my colleague Dr Jitendra Lodha, who helped me to rescue this entire work when my PC crashed and I thought it is lost for ever.
My special thanks are for Dr. Geeta of B. Jain Publishers for her excellent management of this maiden venture of mine. She always worked as if it was her own work.
This book I dedicate in memory of my elder brother Mr. Braham Pal Arya who is no more and in his death we have lost the great pillar of our strength.
