Why are there many schools of medicine when this is not true for other sciences such as physics and chemistry? Author Daya Ram Varma MD, PhD, explores the answer to this question as he shares an in-depth study on The Art and Science of Healing Since Antiquity.
This book has been in the making for over fifty years and represents a distillation of the author’s understanding of the origins of medicine. The modern medicine, like all schools of medicine, is a child of spiritual medicine commonly known as witchcraft. It has made gigantic advances, but not enough to remain unchallenged by other streams of the witchcraft. The Art and Science of Healing Since Antiquity is an attempt to analyze how witchcraft unfolded into its different variants and why modern medicine is its most rational expression.
As readers browse through the pages, they will see how the author endeavors to show that witchcraft, or spiritual medicine, is the medical expression of a gathering and hunting society, Ayurveda, Chinese and Greek medicine of an agricultural society and modern medicine of a capitalist society. Through The Art and Science of Healing Since Antiquity, Dr. Varma attempts to present a political history of medicine that would help readers gain an insight into different schools of medicine and assist them in making a rational choice.
The Art and Science of Healing Since Antiquity will be featured at the 2011 Association of College and Research Libraries Book Exhibit in Philadelphia, PA on April 7-10, 2011. London Book Fair in London, England, on April 11-13, 2011 and in Texas Library Association Book Exhibit in Austin, TX on April 12-15, 2011.
