Praxis (Volumes 1 and 2) - Massimo Mangialavori
First in a series of works which outlines a complete system of homeopathic medicine including an extensive, evolving classification by homeopathic family and detailed clinical information on over 600 remedies, Praxis Volumes I & II presents the most complete methodology in homeopathic medicine since the publication of Hahnemann's Organon of the Medical Art. Building on Hahnemannian principles, Mangialavori offers a new approach to homeopathic epistemology, literature, research, case-taking and analysis.
Primary foci include the structure and strategy of both the patient and the substance from which the remedy is made; the search for coherent themes and their hierarchical organisation; the association of remedies through homeopathic rather than taxonomic families; and the reliance upon strict scientific criteria - primarily case studies as opposed to provings - for validation and elaboration of a remedy's core features. The method incorporates concepts from various disciplines in the humanities and the natural and social sciences, most notably, complexity theory, autopoesis and psychoanalysis.
Praxis Volume I explains Mangialavori's methodology in detail; Volume II (in three parts) serves as a materia medica of the homeopathic Drug family while also providing case examples of how the method is applied. Volume II Part I covers the remedies Agaricus muscarius, Anhalonium lewinii, Bovista lycoperdon, Convolvulus duartinus, Nabalus serpentaria and Psilocybe caerulescens. Praxis is the first in a series of works which will outline a complete system of homeopathic medicine including an extensive, evolving classification by homeopathic family and detailed clinical information on over 600 remedies."
