This work forms the second volume of commentaries on Samuel Hahnemann’s Organon. And what impresses me about Dr. Bhatia’s work in this regard is his ability to take Hahnemann’s visionary work and make it relevant to our times. This relevance is not only for the specifics of homeopathic practice; Dr. Bhatia’s writing ability and encyclopedic style creates a fascinating and intriguing framework that makes you want to read more. He succeeds in giving both historical contexts as well as the motivations of what drove Hahnemann’s great creative force, understandings and even shortcomings.
Since this volume is on Aphorisms 72 to 145, its urgent modern significance becomes very apparent. It starts with a modernized perspective of Hahnemann’s assertion of how disease develops, not only in an individual way but also in the manner of greater societal and natural forces. Dr. Bhatia’s commentaries expand this understanding of infectious disease in a much larger and modern context. This includes a deeper discussion of miasms that is congruent with my understanding of the subject. Dr. Bhatia gives us a modern insightful clarification of Hahnemann’s aphorisms of the “how” of practicing homeopathy with integrity. The key being the word is integrity- I very much liked his advice about how to make a modern practice have the values that Hahnemann emphasized.
