Synopsis

Synopsis

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 discoveries. Dr. Coulter interprets the development of medical ideas as the product of a conflict between two opposed systems of thought, Empiricism and Rationalism.

This second volume of Divided Legacy analyzes the dispute in the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries over the criterion of reliability of medical thought and practice.
Praise

Praise

"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
