EXTENDING PRACTICAL MEDICINE

Fundamental Principles based on the Science of the Spirit

Rudolf Steiner, Dr Ita Wegman

Book Cover spacer

In this classic introductory work on spiritual medicine, Rudolf Steiner worked in unique literary collaboration with the physician Ita Wegman. Their aim was to revitalise the art of healing through spiritual knowlege - yet in so doing they did not underrate or dismiss modern scientific medicine, but illumined it beyond its present materialistic outlook to a fuller realisation of the human condition.

As Ita Wegman wrote in her preface: "The aim was not to underestimate scientific medicine in an ameteurish way; it was given full recognition. But it was important to add to existing knowlege the insights that can come from true perception of the spirit, enabling us to understand the processes of illness and healing."

Today this new extension of practical medicine, known as 'anthroposophical medicine', is used and valued by many physicians and in many clinics around the world.

Dr. ITA WEGMAN was born in the Dutch West Indies in 1876 and trained in gymnastics and massage and later medicine. After founding the Institute of Clinical Medicine in Arlesheim, she was made leader of the Medical Section of the Anthroposophical Society in 1923. Her last years were devoted to her work in the clinic where she died in 1943.
