Dr Hahnemann and his medical system is not, as it has been presented in historical accounts, an isolated boulder in the history of western medicine. It is, rather, an integral part of a profound scientific revolution taking place at the time in Europe, known generally as Romanticism, which gave rise to Romantic science and medicine. The understanding of Romantic science and medicine provides a richer and more meaningful context within which to understand Hahnemann's medical system.
The Romantic scientific revolution, relating particularly to the issues of life, health and illness, not only gives us a greater appreciation for Hahnemann's genius, but provides a rational framework for a scientific healthcare system based on natural laws of vital nature, of which Hahnemann's medical system is an integral part.
