Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann

(10 April 1755 – 2 July 1843) was a German physician, known for creating an alternative form of medicine called Homeopathy.


"The Physician’s high and only mission is to restore the sick to health, to cure, as it is termed."

Martin Gutman is fascinated by Hahnemann described as "A fanatic, driven by indomitable conscience, unwilling and unable to compromise, an iron labourer, a volcano of creativeness, a pedantic craftsman, a strange mixture of egocentric realism and religious idealism. This German gypsy, who could neither live without a home nor settle down anywhere, this almost weird paradox of steadiness and restlessness of Gemutlicheit and aggression, of sentimentality and stubborn hardness, full of suspicion and overflowing with a visionary optimism, is to me an encyclopedia of human weakness and greatness."  [http://www.njhonline.com/abstract/medicina_future_homeopathy.shtml]

Dr. Krauss candidly states in his Introduction to the 2nd Organon: "Hahnemann was, in all essentials, a flawless experimenter."
He was widely regarded as "a writer who has improved and perfected," [Ameke, 14]
and he is variously described as "a capable physician and "one of the most distinguished physicians of Germany…of matured experience and reflection…a man rendered famous by his writings." [Ameke, 75] [http://www.homeoint.org/morrell/articles/empiricalstance.htm]
