Paschero, T P - Homoeopathy
Dr Paschero was the revered founder of the Escuela Medica Homeopatica Argentina and a homoeopath of international stature. A classical homoeopath of the pure Kentian school ? he trained with Kent's immediate successor Dr Arthur Grimmer in Chicago - he possessed a level of insight and understanding of the classical method that has rarely been matched. He also brought to his work a keen knowledge of depth psychology which, blending perfectly with the classical principles, added considerably to the range and lucidity of his thought. Paschero's prolific writings on all aspects of homoeopathy reveal his deep love and respect for humankind both in sickness and in health, and his commitment to the furthering of its potential to transcend its moral and physical limitations by means of the highest standards of homoeopathic treatment. They place him firmly within the finest humanistic tradition of medicine. Homoeopathy comprises a selection of the best of his writings, spanning a long and highly productive career. Beginning with a section on homoeopathic philosophy, the book explores the meaning and implications of the vitalistic outlook that underpins Hahnemann's and Kent's view of the nature and purpose of human life. The essential principles of homoeopathy are examined and elucidated in turn, including the Law of Cure, the chronic miasms, and the significance of the mental picture among the totality of symptoms. This is followed by an in-depth look at clinical aspects such as casetaking, finding the simillimum and child psychology in homoeopathy, amply illustrated with examples drawn from the author's casebooks. The book concludes with a selection of essays on the materia medica, consolidating the remedy pictures that emerge in the previous section.
