Introduction to Dynamic Thinking
In this unit you will study the scientific background for homeopathy and Heilkunst as it relates to Romantic science and the revolution concerning vital nature. The first Scientific Revolution was about inert nature, and celestial mechanics – the Copernican heliocentric system and Newton’s laws of physics. However, this science could not properly deal with and explain vital nature, which gave rise to a new science. This science resulted in Dr. Hahnemann’s dynamic system of medicine, in contrast to the allopathic system which reduced life to chemical interactions and treatment to drugs.
The objective of this unit is to provide you with an overview of the foundations of your study of dynamic regimen as a Dynamic Health Counsellor (DynHC). You will discuss the material in general terms with your tutor to ensure that you have understood the key ideas and concepts that will help you in your studies.
RS 106 – The Epistemology of Wholeness – Seeing in a Different Way
