Item Description: ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1850 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book.

Item Description: Theclassics.Us, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1850 edition. Excerpt: . Theories have given rise to the numberless modes and systems of practice in medicine. All of these are wrong, and should be discarded as worse than useless, even the best of them. There is error, gross error, in every mode of practice, because it necessarily excludes valuable facts. The only proper mode of practice, if it can be termed a mode, is the eclectic, which simply takes facts from whatever quarter they may come, whether they belong to any system or not, and uses them in the cure of disease. I wish to be distinctly understood on this point. I have not said that there is no truth in any of the modes, or systems, which have prevailed. There is some truth in most of them, not to say all. And the true eclectic will sift out from them whatever of truth he may find, and use it, whether they have had a professional or a non-professional origin. There is some truth in Hydropathy; some, a little, in Thompsonianism; some in Calomelism, as it may be termed, for calomel is used by some in somewhat the same exclusive way as water is by the Hydropath, and lobelia and red pepper and steam, are by the Thompsonian. Of Homoeopathy, popular as it is among the refined, the learned and the wealthy, I must make an exception. There is absolutely no truth in this system. In this mode of practice, if followed out in good faith, there is nothing done, though there is a show of doing much. Only when Homoeopathists forsake their principles, as all of them, even to Hahnemann, sometimes do, and give Allopathic doses, that they have anything relevant in their records of the effects of remedies. But even then, it is impossible to pick out what is relevant from the profusion of shapeless rubbish which is gathered by their indiscriminate mode of observation.

Item Description: New York. Baker and Scribner. ., 1850. First Edition. 105 pp. + 2 pp. publisher's ads 8vo. Hooker (1806Ð1867) was a professor at Yale and a champion of rationality and evidence based medicine. Accordingly he was passionately opposed to homeopathy and here, in its first edition, he presents an attack on this discipline and its practitioners. His stand had considerable political influence. In 1852, a reply to Hooker was published by Erastus Edgerton Marcy in his "Homeopathy and Allopathy." Hooker argues here against post hoc propter hoc reasoning, exuberant acceptance of the notion of vis medicatrix naturae quackery (in the form of Perkins' Tractors, Weapon Ointment, Bishop Berkeley's Tar Water, Pneumatic Medicine ). Similarly, he rails against the misapplication of statistics and the infinitesimal doses in homeopathy. All in all, Hooker presents a very modern view, with appeal to mental (placebo) effects for some explanations and the decrying of fashions in medicine. Lacks outer paper layer of spine. Browning of outermost edges of pages. Owner's bookplate on front pastedown. Else, Very Good. Cordasco AA244. Bluish tan paper covered boards. Bookseller Inventory # 10084
