BJain books typically fall apart after minimal use. Total rip off! I will rerun this book again. This is the last two editions of the Organon so it has all the new stuff Hahnemann discovered water dosing and LM potencies etc plus all the previous editions notes.
Not for the layman. Not an easy read. Gotta study it little by little. A homeopaths Bible. One person found this helpful. Perfect for me. A good description of the difference between allopathic medicine and homeopathy. The author as the creator of the science of homeopathy. The law of similars and smallest dose are well described. A very good resource for the student of homeopathy. No homeopath can go without a classic Organon! Best book on my shelf!
Just what I needed. This book really gave no information and was very difficult to understand. If you want to know how to practice homoeopathy, this is all you should need to read from the Founder himself. Every answer to every question you may have will be found in this book and if you intend to study homoeopathy, this should be the very first thing you read. Not many people like the Boericke translation.
I find it easier to read every year - yes, you should read it once a year from cover to cover. This little edition published in India is great for keeping in your handbag and carrying with you to read and re-read at your leisure. If you want a reference edition, without so many editorial glitches, get an edition published in America or the UK.

This led to the decision to present a digital surrogate on the web to make it accessible to a wider audience. Digitizing Hahnemann's manuscript and determining the best method of presentation on the web posed several challenges. Lessons learned in the course of this project will inform future digital projects. This article discusses the historical significance of the sixth edition of Hahnemann's Organon , its context in UCSF's homeopathy collections, and the specifics of developing the online homeopathy collection.
Samuel Hahnemann's manuscript of the sixth edition of the Organon der Heilkunst is of special importance to homeopaths because of the significant changes from previous editions and the eighty-year gap between completion of the manuscript and publication. Creating a digital homeopathy collection composed of different types of physical objects required a combination of technical solutions. Preparing a digital surrogate of a complex physical object revealed challenges and issues that will inform planning for future projects.
A digital collection is a work in progress that must evolve and adapt as new technologies emerge. The library holds Hahnemann's own copy of the fifth edition of the Organon the last edition published in Hahnemann's lifetime , in which he wrote notes and made revisions for the sixth edition first published almost eighty years after Hahnemann's death [ 1 , 2 ].
Hahnemann's notes are written in the margins and on facing pages in the fifth edition, with longer notes on paper interleaved throughout the volume Figure 1. The manuscript volume is part of the library's extensive collection of historic works in homeopathy. Because the sixth edition of the Organon presented significant changes to homeopathic practice and because it is among Hahnemann's final professional writings, homeopaths from all over the world come to San Francisco to study the manuscript volume.
This avid user group with a high level of interest made the Organon manuscript a strong candidate for digitization and presentation on the web. The online collection also includes a handwritten transcript of Hahnemann's text and revisions used by Dr. Richard Haehl as the basis for the published German sixth edition , Leipzig , as well as homeopathy pamphlets. Lessons learned in the course of this project have better equipped library staff to undertake future digitization projects with rare and unique materials.
The Organon was Hahnemann's most significant work. The first edition, published in as Organon der Rationellen Heilkunde Organon of Rational Healing , established a new mode of medical practice: homeopathy. The Organon put Hahnemann at odds with the medical establishment in Europe, as homeopathy unlike other alternative medical systems in use at that time cannot be practiced in tandem with allopathic medicine.
Further, Hahnemann's assertion that physicians should prepare their own remedies angered pharmacists and apothecaries [ 7 ]. Hahnemann revised the Organon five times, with each edition refining methods and adding knowledge gained from his homeopathic practice and research.
Beginning with the second edition in , the title was changed to Organon der Heilkunst Organon of the Medical Art. The fifth edition, published in , was the last edition published during Hahnemann's lifetime [ 8 ]. Hahnemann was unable to bring the book to publication before his death in July Much has been written about the significance of the sixth edition of the Organon.
It contained changes to homeopathic practice that would have caused a stir had the book been published when it was written and were controversial well into the twentieth century. This represented a major shift in instructions on potency and administration given in the fifth edition [ 4 , 5 ].
Haehl did not mention the new potencies in his introduction to the sixth edition, perhaps to de-emphasize them [ 5 ]. The sixth edition of the Organon was not published until , nearly eighty years after Hahnemann completed it [ 1 ].
During those eight decades, homeopathy continued to develop without the new concepts that Hahnemann presented in his final work. Homeopathy practice in the United States, which flourished and expanded in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, was based on the fifth edition [ 5 ]. Accounts differ as to the reasons for the long delay in publishing the sixth edition. She only made the existence of Hahnemann's manuscript known publicly when false sixth editions began to appear [ 8 ].
Carefully compared with the Original Manuscript. Haehl kept the handwritten transcript copy and used it as the basis for the German sixth edition, published in Leipzig in [ 1 ]. He sent Hahnemann's original manuscript volume to Ward and Boericke in San Francisco, and Boericke used it as the basis of the American edition [ 2 ].
At some later date, Haehl sent the transcript copy to San Francisco, though when or why is not known. The bulk of Hahnemann's papers—including manuscripts, correspondence, and casebooks—did not leave Germany and are now housed at the Robert Bosch Institute for the History of Medicine in Stuttgart.
The foundation's library was relocated to the Hahneman Hospital of San Francisco in At that time, Dr. Howard Engle, recognizing the value of the Organon manuscript volume, placed it in a locked safe. Later, it was moved to a rented safety deposit box in a local bank.
In , most of the Homeopathic Foundation of California's library comprising more than 1, books, serial titles, and hundreds of pamphlets was donated to the UCSF Library. The manuscript of the Organon , however, remained in a safety deposit box, under the care of Engle's sister-in-law, Elsa Engle.
In February of , Elsa Engle arranged with Dr. The handwritten transcript copy used by Haehl to prepare the sixth edition had been separated from the rest of the collection or perhaps had never been placed with the collection and remained in the Hahnemann Hospital library, apparently forgotten. Meanwhile, homeopathy practice had ceased at the Hahnemann Hospital at some time in the s.
The hospital was renamed the Marshall Hale Memorial Hospital in and then merged with two other hospitals to eventually become the California Pacific Medical Center in [ 11 ]. In the same box with the transcript was a scrapbook containing photographs of homeopaths and historic landmarks such as Hahnemann's home and monuments to Hahnemann—the illustrations for Haehl's biography of Hahnemann [ 9 ].
There has been a high level of interest in Hahnemann's manuscript of the sixth edition of the Organon since it first arrived at UCSF in Guttentag displayed it at the meeting of an international homeopathic conference in San Francisco later that year. It is not uncommon for homeopaths to use Schmidt's edition as a guide when studying Hahnemann's manuscript. Since the library's acquisition of the transcript copy, readers also study it side-by-side with the original manuscript and compare the two.
The high level of user interest in the Organon led to the decision to present it digitally on the web. The goal was to create a digital collection of UCSF's homeopathy holdings, using the manuscript volume of the Organon as the cornerstone of the collection. The online collection would showcase the prized manuscript, but also display other materials that are part of the overall homeopathy collection and create a forum for community discussion.
The Harvard matrix for selecting material for digitization was used as reference to validate the reasoning for creating this digital collection, and it was determined that this was indeed a worthy project to undertake [ 14 ]. The digital collection could start out small and increase in size as resources permitted. An evaluation of the collection commenced to ascertain what to include in a first iteration of this digital collection. There was no doubt that Hahnemann's manuscript volume would be a challenge to digitize and adequately represent on the web.
Aside from the technical challenges, the manuscript presents issues in comprehension and preservation. Hahnemann's notes are written in early nineteenth-century German, using specialized terminology, and his handwriting is difficult to decipher. There are handwritten notes on the printed pages, on the interleaves between each printed page, and inserted as separate pieces of paper throughout the book.
The paper is fragile and must be handled with great care. Most of the notes are taped to the appropriate page, but several are on loose pieces of paper. The detached notes tend to be in places where Hahnemann made extensive revisions.
The physical condition of the inserted notes varies. In some cases, both sides of the sheets have been written on and the sheets have been folded multiple times, causing stress on the paper. Other notes have tape or paste stains obscuring the handwriting.
The handwriting is quite small, but this small handwriting would be enhanced through digitization, which would allow the users to utilize zoom tools for better readability. As more time was spent with the actual book, questions arose regarding the placement of those notes that were not taped or pasted in place. Because several different people had handled the manuscript over the years, it was uncertain whether all of the loose notes were still placed correctly in the volume.
During this evaluation period, a Swiss homeopath who could read Hahnemann's German requested to see the manuscript and very generously offered to assist in deciphering the correct placement of the notes. She studied Hahnemann's manuscript along with Schmidt's text-critical edition [ 12 ] and determined that some of the loose notes were not correctly placed within the physical book. Rather than risk the integrity of the book any further by attempting to move the physical notes, a solution needed to be found to represent their original placement accurately in the digital version.
Thus, the digital book would not be a true surrogate, but an enhanced version of the analog object. This meant that any digital representation would need to allow users to open the notes separately from the printed pages in order to facilitate further discussion and research as to correct placement of the notes.
During this time, the handwritten transcript of the sixth edition arrived at the library, and it could therefore readily be included in the digital collection. The pamphlets, due to limited resources, needed to be culled down to a small sampling. The only challenge with these supporting materials was to decide how best to display them alongside the digital version of the Organon.
Several current digital book projects were reviewed as part of the evaluation process to help determine the best method for displaying this digital collection. Display options seemed divided between portable document format PDF and Flash-based flip-books.
Presenting the transcript copy and, possibly, the smaller pamphlets in PDF form would be acceptable; however, this format seemed unwieldy for the Organon manuscript because of the nature of the handwritten notes.
Additional consideration regarding the notes and the reverence users have for this volume rendered a PDF solution unsuitable, and it was quickly determined that a flip-book application would best re-create, digitally, the experience of viewing the manuscript. Ideally, this type of application would recreate the experience of turning pages with the added ability of zooming into the handwritten notes.
The valuable content of the manuscript is in the handwritten notes; however, the idea of attempting optical character recognition OCR had to be tabled because handwriting is difficult to capture accurately. This left the challenging option of allowing users to open the complex notes in a separate window, while they view the printed pages at the same time. This was accomplished programmatically by adding a notes icon to those pages with complex handwritten notes, so that these could be opened separately from the flip-book.
Scanning of the transcript copy and the pamphlets was accomplished using an existing flatbed scanner in the archives. Tell the Publisher! I'd like to read this book on Kindle Don't have a Kindle?
