Divided Legacy (Vols. I-IV) is a history of Western medical philosophy from the time of Hippocrates to the twentieth century, treating it as a unified system of thought rather than a series of fortuitous discovers. Dr. Coulter interprets the development of medical ideas as the product of a conflict between two opposed systems of thought, Empiricism and Rationalism.
This first volume of Divided Legacy is a history of Western medical philosophy from the time of Hippocrates to Paracelsus.
"Coulter’s book gives those of us involved in holistic practice a sense of history, a broad and humanizing perspective on the politics and economics of contending medical philosophies in the marketplace….His tone is unsensational and earnest. His research is stunning." — Norman Weinstein in East-West Journal
