The Boenninghausen Repertory - Therapeutic Pocketbook Method (Second Edition) - George Dimitriadis (ed)
The most accurate English re-translation of BÃ¶nninghausen's Therapeutisches Taschenbuch, carefully corrected with reference to his original manuscript.
This new second edition for 2010 has been thoroughly revised. Less reliable information has been removed while the number of pages has grown from 287 to 367. The 136 page Endnote section gives an understanding of the contextual meaning of individual rubrics. In that way, it succeeds like no other repertory in helping us use the classical remedies.
Notes on the first edition: This is a much improved translation of the T.F. Allen edition Boenninghausen's Therapeutic Pocket Book. According to the editor, Hahnemann commended Boenninghausen because the structure and contents of this repertory most precisely reflect the observations and teachings of Hahnemann. Dimitriadis carefully outlines Boenninghausen's method, which helps immensely to find which symptoms are crucial for remedy selection. He then presents the repertory, which he has diligently corrected and rearranged to be more clear and user-friendly for clinical practice. The original Concordances chapter (1846) has been replaced with Boenninghausen's more recent (1853) list of remedy relationships. Finally, each of the 2,695 rubrics is numbered, so that it can be referenced to the 69 pages of Endnotes, for explanations and references to the original German. A meticulous work, this book should be in the library of every classical homeopath.
