Overview

What is the nature of matter? Within conventional science, the reductionist, materialist view asserts that matter is solely physical. Hauschka shows that open-minded study, based on qualitative observation and quantitative research, can overcome this now standardized view. Without denying the laws of matter, he shows the limitations of a science restricted by them, and points to new research which indicates the primal nature of spirit.

This is the result of Dr Hauschka's many years of research at the Ita Wegman Clinic in Arlesheim, Switzerland. Through decades of experimentation, he came to radical conclusions that suggested new directions for science. This book includes detailed results of his experiments, although his approach is not restricted to measure and physical observation. Based on the work of Goethe and Rudolf Steiner, he encourages a method of seeing nature in a way that has an artistic quality, and he calls for direct experience instead of intellectual theories.

The Nature of Substance is generally accessible. The author deliberately avoids technical terms and academic style in favor of vivid descriptions and lively discussions. This fascinating study covers many substances, with chapters on plants, animals, oils, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, metals, carbon, oxygen, poisons, high dilutions, and much more.

This book is a companion volume to the author's other work, Nutrition.
