Spelled commonly "Homeopathy" and formally "Homoeopathy" it is still the same - a pure and sure way of healing.
REBUILDING WITH THEORY AND SCIENCE
This is a group of Homoeopaths willing to contribute their ideas for a revolutionary re-building of HOMOEOPATHY on a rational and scientific foundation, emancipating this great therapeutic art from clutches of unscientific, metaphysical and vitalistic ideologies. We call this emerging science as DIALECTICAL HOMOEOPATHY, since this rebuilding is achieved with the help of the theoretical tools of dialectic methodology.
THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD
In this modern era of scientific thought, we can no longer proceed further ahead with Homoeopathy, without the help of a well proven and universally acceptable scientific methodology. We can no longer hope to depend upon certain set of somewhat mysterious quotations and philosophical speculations inherited from our great masters. It is very important that Homoeopathy has to be first of all dealt with as a subject of science, not as a religion or metaphysics. Essentially, the principles of Homoeopathy have yet to achieve the right to be recognized as part of modern medical science. To begin with, it has to attain acceptability among the modern scientific community, at least in terms of a rational methodology and vocabulary.
HISTORICAL KNOWLEDGE CONTRIBUTES TO THE UNFOLDING PROCESS
Human knowledge develops and unfolds itself through a never ending dialectic process of simultaneous assimilation and negation of history. It is impossible for anybody to proceed with his intellectual quest without drawing resources from the treasures of knowledge amassed by the by-gone generations. Obviously, no genius can totally overcome the objective limitations imposed upon him by the space-time context of his life and activities. Development of human knowledge should be percieved in relation with this objective framework of historical evolution. Man knows today much more than he knew yesterday. Certainly he would know infinitely more tomorrow, than what he knows today. The knowledge of yesterdays, however great they might have been, were much incomplete than that of today. Tomorrow, human knowledge would be definitely more expansive and more inclusive than that of today. The basis of scientific perspective of history lies in realizing this fundamental truth.
THE LIMITATIONS OF A PERIOD IN TIME
We should never forget the objective historical context of 18th century Germany, where Samuel Hahnemann lived and developed his novel therapeutic system. Two hundred and more eventful years have passed since it happened. It is not to be seen as a sin to say that his thoughts and propositions were definitely confined by the limitations imposed by the infantile level of science and technology then existed there. Even though the therapeutic system he developed is capable of transcending the boundaries of centuries to come, it would be unfair to try to evaluate his achievements and contributions detatched from his objective time-space framework.
I hereby invite you to join this group, and contribute your ideas in this great effort. I also request you to invite your fellow homoeopaths also, thereby making this endeavour a success. Please post your suggestions and opinions on the subject regularly
