Fascinating account of the influence of Emanuel Swedenborg on homoeopathic philosophy and practice - particularly exploring the nature of Understanding and Will - and how these 2 differing expressions of vitality and disease manifest symptomatically - Will governing the heart and circulation; Understanding the mind and digestion. With this schemata, Fraser demonstrates how diseases develop and heal according to a more complete version of Hering's law of cure certainly not taught at my college! Also traces the threads of ancient greek thought on western consciousness - via Plato and Aristotle - and how these skeins conjoined in Swedenborg during the 18th century. A wealth of information - but very concise and lucid.
