Nile, S - Structuralism & The Plant Kingdom. Volume 1: Monocots
The book catalogues and compares trends which pervade the Botanical hierarchy of families, orders and entire clades and places them into stage tables which are based of the previous work of Dr Scholten (stages) and Dr Sankaran (miasms).
In this book I unearth aspects of Psychology which can enrich the stage concept with various perspectives and methods, such cluster analysis which have the potential to provide a more quantative evaluation. This means that the stage concept can be applied to any remedy or case.
Another challenge, implicit in any Botanical study of Materia Medica is to integrate any causal relationships between the evolution of botanical function of each of these groups and the symptoms they produce into the remedy pictures.
