Essential Readings

Rating
Paracelsus, the father of modern medicine, was a controversial 16th-century scientist and healer who challenged the medical world's reliance on classical texts and abstract reasoning with his holistic approach, an approach that will strike a chord with many people today, in an age where alternative medicine is becoming more and more popular. This book fills the long-standing gaps in our knowledge of the man and his work.

Reviews

"[This] volume is of particular value to the historian of ideas in making the contribution of Parcelsus available to the general reader and enabling us to see the contemporary relevance of his world-view and the seminal nature of his contributions to the intellectual debates of his time." - David Lorimer, The Scientific and Medical Network Newsletter "This new collection will serve a useful purpose for those who wish to introduce Paracelsus in their course on Renaissance and Early Modern science and medicine." - Allen G. Debus, The University of Chicago, Ambix.
