Description

This is one of the pamphlets printed in reaction to the Holmes lecture on homeopathy. In responding to Holmes' criticism of the use of infinitesimal doses, Charles Neidhard states, "We, with many Homœopathic physicians, have never believed in the necessity of carrying the dilutions to that extent, which Hahnemann at once time recommended…. It is true that Hahnemann, elated by the magnitude of his discoveries, imagined at one time, that the highest dilutions were exclusively to be relied upon in all cases. He shared in this error the fate of all great discoverers, and he was always the first to rectify a statement, when it no longer accorded with his experience. Thus the new method, for ever progressing, has also in this respect undergone such changes, as a more mature experience warranted."
