The basic hypothesis presented here is that the progress of biomedical research, on the one hand, and the evolution of homeopathy, on the other, are leading to an increasing degree of convergence of the two systems, which are usually regarded as alternatives. An open-minded scientific approach to homeopathy can thus be a source of major surprises and of fascinating fields of investigation for both the medical practitioner and the biological researcher.

Abstract

The basic hypothesis presented here is that the progress of biomedical research, on the one hand, and the evolution of homeopathy, on the other, are leading to an increasing degree of convergence of the two systems, which are usually regarded as alternatives. An open-minded scientific approach to homeopathy can thus be a source of major surprises and of fascinating fields of investigation for both the medical practitioner and the biological researcher. This study aims at comparing certain aspects of basic research and homeopathy, according to a methodology firmly rooted in the practices of general pathology. The ideas and experience reported here are thus an attempt to construct common ground or, at any rate, a dialogue between medical systems with very different histories and conceptual bases.
