by Farokh J. Master




Glimpses of the Association Between Fairy Tales and Homeopathy

By Dr. Farokh Master

This book brings together the most recent developments in the archetypal patterns in fairy tales, while taking into account the complexity of the emerging field. It is a collection of fairy tale interpretations keeping homeopathic philosophy, materia medica and repertory as its base. It helps us understand the minds of our patients through these characters. The book is written equally for homeopaths involved with Jungian analytical methods as well as for homeopaths who know nothing regarding psychotherapy and psychology. It offers insights into the psychology of all the characters, especially the central characters like the prince, princess, king, step-mother. While others reflect the problems and characteristics of the anima, the inner femininity of man.

“Dr Master has launched us on a fascinating journey taking us back to our childhoods and then forcing us to grow out into wizened old men through applying the instrument of reason and analysis. The mode of entry into Materia Medica from the totality erected out of a characterological analysis is interesting as is also the differential Materia Medica. What constitutes the cream of the cake is the successful demonstration of the process in the clinic. A commendable and scholarly effort indeed!”
– Dr Kumar Dhawale
“Understanding a typical character or a particular behavior and interpreting its components into homeopathic terminology to arrive at the similimum is a basic but difficult task for a homeopath.
