Sub-titled "The Nightmare Between Light and dark", An extremely interesting, penetrating account of the Solananceae & their wild, angry acting-out, often compensated for in various ways (for example - by being over rational & controlled). These general themes are discussed both in relation to the better known of the Solanaceae (Eg: Belladonna, Stramonium, Hyoscyamus), as well as to less common ones such as Mandragora, Solanum Nigrum and Tabacum. Discussion is not limited to the Solananaceae family. Other remedies - such as Lyssin, Gallic Acid and Tanacetum, which share fundamental themes are considered as well.
The author gives a meticulous analysis of his cured cases. The whole work is interwoven with a renaissance awareness of science, philosophy, art, classical literature and mythology, all bringing a richness and depth to our understanding of these remedies.
