From the Publisher
The sixth edition of the "Organon" as left by Hahnemann ready for publication was found to be an interleaved copy of the fifth, the last German Edition, published in 1833. In his eighty-sixth year, while in active practice in Paris, he completed the thorough revision of it by carefully going over paragraph by paragraph, making changes, erasures, annotations and additions.
The book in this sixth edition is of the greatest interest and importance, completing as it does the marvelous array of Hahnemann's philosophic insight into the practice of medicine. Hahnemann's "Organon" is the high water mark of medical philosophy, the practical interpretation of which produces a veritable mountains of light and will guide the physician by means of the Law of Cure to a new world of therapeutics.
