Lectures on Homoeopathic Philosophy (Indian ed) - James Tyler Kent
Transcriptions of the lectures Kent gave to his classes in the study of the Organon. Although the year of the lectures is uncertain it was probably between 1896 (when Kent began to introduce Swedenborg concepts into his lectures) and 1899 - the last year he taught the course at the Post Graduate School in Philadelphia. The first edition contained a "Homoeopathic Catechism" written by Julia Loos, MD, consisting of 100 questions about the Organon. "It is deemed that anyone who can fully and comprehensively respond to this list of queries has a good working knowledge of the principles of Homoeopathy and their application."
In 1917, Ehrhart and Karl issued "The Memorial Edition" with a photograph of Kent as a frontispiece and several eulogies for Kent. The edition was re-printed several times. A 5th edition was printed in 1954. A "guidebook" to the 5th edition of the Organon as seen by Kent through his Swedenborgian filters. Because most of the teachers up to the present day were strongly influenced by the pupils of Kent, the models presented by Kent that discuss homoeopathy with the Swedenborg overlay have formed the "whole cloth" of the homoeopathic garment with little critical discussion comparing the work of Hahnemann (what was said) and the work of Kent (what he says Hahnemann said).
