Hahnemann: The Adventurous Career of a Medical Rebel
Borodino Books, 2018/09/03 - 202 ページ
Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) was one of the most notable and controversial figures of his time as physician, chemist and medical writer. In the fight against the inadequacy of conventional medicine and the pursuit of truth, he became the founder of the homoeopathic doctrine of healing like with like. Enmity and persecution drive him restlessly from place to place. A stubborn fool in the eyes of the contemporary medical profession, Hahnemann retreats to the loneliness of old age...but a fateful encounter with the French painter Mélanie d’Hervilly towards the end of his life leads to his desired fulfillment.
In this fascinating biography, fellow physician Dr. Martin Gumpert provides an exemplary linguistic representation of ‘the great crusader of his field’ who rebelled against the orthodox medicine of his time as a lost science, who oftentimes gave up his medical practice in order not to cause further harm, and who tirelessly sought to overcome lack of knowledge within medical science.
