Providing an understanding of the nature of the archetypal form-patterns that express themselves in the similarity between substance and psychosomatic dynamics, this collection explores why this similarity is a basic factor in the healing process.
"Through the essays is an emphasis upon the dynamic interplay between allopathy and homeopathy, psyche and soma, inner and outer ecology which are resolved in the wisdom of the eternal tao. Above all else, Whitmont's life-affirming philosophy places these archetypal patterns in a historic context extending from medieval alchemists to molecular biologists and restores a sense of balance to the dynamic which is life itself." - Kenneth R. Pelletier, Ph.D.
"Every page of this book questions our basic assumptions as to the nature of mind and matter, and challenges us to take a fresh look at old, familiar concepts. No serious student of homeopathy can afford to neglect thoughtful study of these writings." - Mesimund Panos, M.D.
