Excerpt from The Philadelphia Journal of Homoeopathy, 1854-5, Vol. 3
I quote from the Organon, (page 96, Section VI. 3d American Edition), the language upon which the Opponents of pathological research seem to base their objections, viz., The unprejudiced observer, (however great may be his powers of penetration) aware of the futility of all elaborate speculations that are not confirmed by experience, perceives, in each individual affection nothing, but changes of the state of the body and mind, (traces of disease, casualties, symptoms, ) that are discoverable by the senses alone, that is to say, deviations from the former sound state of health which are felt by the patient himself, remarked by the individuals around him, and observed by the physician. The ensemble of these available signs represents, in its full extent, the disease itself - that is, they constitute the true and only form of it which the mind is capable of conceiving.
