The psychological intricacies of the therapeutic encounter. Deep stuff!
Dr Whitmont knew Carl Jung and explained homeopathy to him. He was both a homeopath and an analytical psychologist. This book fuses the approaches of both schools of thought.
The following is from the publisher's description:
In The Alchemy of Healing, Dr. Edward C. Whitmont explores the major themes of illness, health, and the practice of medicine. Uniquely qualified by his personal associations with such pioneers as Carl Jung, M. Esther Harding, Karl Konig, Elizabeth Wright Hubbard, and G.B. Stearns, Whitmont takes a daring plunge into the paradoxes of homeopathic medicine, psychoanalytic transference, quantum physics, and the Gaia Hypothesis. Deftly exploring such subjects as Jungian synchronicity, alchemy, the I Ching, and the Law of Similars, he hints at the unknown principles fusing organism, planet, and cosmos and at a healing principle so profound it is written in both the stars and the sub-molecular traces of molecules.
In this landmark work that addresses for the first time in our century the esoteric role of the physician in the drama of life and death, Whimont provides a forum for one of the most neglected voices of Western Civilization
