    excellent overview of Paracelsus and his medical philosophy, June 18, 2003

    This review is from: Paracelsus, His Mystical and Medical Philosophy (Paperback)

    Paracelsus’s personality and medical philosophy are well described by Hall. The book is very readable and entertaining. Paracelsus was a character, but also considered one of the early real holistic physicians. We are still able to learn from him today. He seemed to appreciate that combining traditional and non-traditional medicine together is the best medicine. Body/mind/spirit the Paracelsus way.

    EXCELLENT !!!, June 11, 2003

    Palacelsus and his ideas and philosophy are well written by Hall. The book is very readable and informative as well as entertaining. Paracelsus was definitely a character, but his philosophy in medicine is timeless. Like in modern times, an individual that goes against the grain is often ridiculed. But when he or she is later proven to be “right”, then they are later idolized. Even though he was politically offensive at times, his medical philosophy (“holisticism”)was respectful, practical, and in ways nonjudgemental. True holistic medicine is the ideal for the past, present, and future. It existed before Paracelsus, like traditional native healers, but he spells it out for us. It is the mind/body/spirit connection. Definitely thought provoking.

    A great foundation text of the western mystery tradition., January 27, 2008

    This review is from: Paracelsus, His Mystical and Medical Philosophy (Paperback)

    This is a well written short introduction of the contributions Paracelsus made to the establishment of the western mystery tradition. Rosicrucian students will find the section of the book on the “Elementals” very revealing and students of “Theurgy” will find the section on “Magnetism” very rewarding. Paracelsus was a real sage during his time and Manly P. Hall does a great job conveying this fact within the pages of this little book. Highly recommended!!!
