Product Description


"There are three great epic works in the English language prior to the twentieth century: the translations of Homer, Melville's Moby Dick, and Kent's Lectures on Homeopathic Philosophy."
- Theodore Enslin

About the Author

James Tyler Kent, A.M., Chicago, Illinois, Professor of Materia Medica in Hahnemann Medical College, Chicago physician and author of several valuable medical works, is a native of the town of Woodhull, Steuben county, New York, born in 1849, son of Stephen Kent and Caroline Tyler, his wife. His elementary and secondary education was acquired in Franklin Academy, Prattsburg, and his higher education in Madison (now Colgate) University, Hamilton, New York, where he came to his degree, Ph.B., in 1868; A. M., 1870. He was educated in medicine in the Eclectic Medical Institute, Cincinnati, Ohio, graduating there in 1871, and the Homoeopathic Medical College of Missouri, St. Louis, where he was awarded the diploma of that institution in 1889. Dr. Kent began his professional career in St. Louis as a physician of the eclectic school at the same time being actively connected with several eclectic journals in the capacity of writer and also took an earnest part in the councils of the Eclectic National College, St. Louis, 1877-78, about which time his attention was forcibly directed to homoeopathy, through the serious illness of his wife, whose case refused to yield to the treatment either of his own eclectic or the allopathic school practitioners, but was subdued by homoeopathic treatment.

He then became a careful student of Hahnemann's Organon and other works of the new school, with result in his complete conversion to homoeopathy, his resignation from the Eclectic Medical Association in 1879 and his appointment to the chair of Anatomy in the Homoeopathic Medical College of Missouri, which he held from 1881 until 1883, and Professor of Materia Medica from 1883 until 1888. Later on he was dean and professor of Materia Medica in the Post-Graduate School of Homoeopathics, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; dean and professor of materia medica in Dunham Medical College, Chicago; dean and professor of materia medica in Hering Medical College, Chicago; and in 1905 he held the same chair in Hahnemann Medical College, Chicago.

Thus for more than thirty-five years Dr. Kent had been a conspicuous figure in medical circles, and for more than twenty-five years in teaching and practice under the law of similia; and he is looked upon as one of the ablest teachers and exponents of the homoeoapthic school in America. His contributions to the literature of the profession are known by their strength rather than their length, and include, more prominently, his Repertory, Homeopathic Philosophy and Lectures on Materia Medica. Among the various professional associations of which he was a member, the more prominent of them, were the Illinois State Homoeopathic Medical Society, the American Institute of Homoeopathy and the International Hahnemannian Association, besides which he held a honorary corresponding membership in the British Homoeopathic Medical Society. Kent died, on June 6, 1916 at Stevensville, Montana.

HASH(0x98e1df00) out of 5 stars Essential Reading for Serious Students of Homoeopathy June 8 2006
By Sile - Published on
Format: Paperback
So, your serious about studying homoeopathy? Well, after the Organon and Chronic Diseases, this book should be your next step in learning the philosophy behind this unique system of medicine.

This is an essential book which every practicising homoeopath will return to again and again throughout their practice. If possible, I would recommend you buy the editions printed in the United States or the UK as these will last longer and the investment will be worth it.

James Tyler Kent is one of the best known homoeopaths in the modern world and the reading of his work is essential (in this student's opinion), but it is a guide only to the philosophy, as stated in the preface. It should be read in conjunction with the Organon and used as a study guide. Being clearer than the Organon, it will help steer you in the right direction.

HASH(0x98fb3a74) out of 5 stars Excellent but not for household use Jan. 4 2011
By Genuine Redhead - Published on
Format: Paperback
Yes it's a wonderful book but please don't use it as your introduction to homeopathy - it's much too technical and also very old fashioned in style.
It's definitely a classic but for serious students not for home users.

Everyone should read this even if they don't have the slightest interest in homeopathy. This book serves as an invaluable tool in broadening one's understanding of life, health and disease.
Kent has made a priceless contribution to humanity.

HASH(0x98db7714) out of 5 stars Lectures on Homeopathic Philosophy Oct. 8 2011
By Jyoti Wind - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Step by step, lecture by lecture, Kent takes the reader through to a deeper understanding of Hahnemann's principles of Homeopathy. These are lectures Kent gave and they were compiled by his students. Excellent material for the beginning student or the practicing Homeopath.
HASH(0x98e0e87c) out of 5 stars A Must for every homeopathic student to read - again and again! Sept. 30 2015
By Connie J. Wehmeyer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Reading this book should be the same suggestions as reading the Organon - once a year for each year of the first 30 years you are a homeopath - after that twice a year. I can't believe this is the same book I read parts of a few years ago when I started homeopathy school. Once you know more the book takes on even more depth. If you are a student - read this as soon as you can! It is easy reading, clarifies a lot of the Organon, and gives some great insights on many subjects!
