Quick Overview


The first edition of James Tyler Kents Lectures on Homoeopathic Materia Medica was published in 1905. Kent felt that the speech of layman presents all sickness to the physicians mind, hence materia medica must be reduced from technicalities to simple speech of the patient. By presenting every remedys strong characteristics, Kent shows how the materia medica is evolved and used. This is one of the first instances where a remedy picture is portrayed. Here are 217 remedies from the pen of one of the most influential American homeopaths. These are the transcribed lectures from Kents classes at the Post Graduate School of Homeopaths in Philadelphia. Though not a primary materia medica, there are wonderful gems to be found within. Witness the distinctive picture of the sycotic miasm within the context of the remedy, Natrum sulphuricum. The colloquial presentation leads to an easier grasp of the information. The lectures are in simple form, explaining Kents plan of study for each remedy.

James Tyler Kent, A.M., Chicago, Illinois, Professor of Meteria Medica in Hahnemann Medical College, Chicago physician and author of several valuable medical works, is a native of the town of Woodhull, Steuben country, New York, born in 1849, son of Stephen Kent and Caroline Tyler, his wife. His elementary and secondary education was acquired in Franklin Academy, Prattsburg, and his higher education in Madison (now Colgate) University, Hamilton, New York, where he came to his degree, Ph.B., in 1868; A.M., 1870. He was educated in medicine in the Eclectic Medical Institute, Cincinnati, Ohio, graduating there in 1871, and the Homoeopathic Medical College of Missouri, St. Louis, where he was awarded the diploma of that institution in 1889. Dr. Kent began his professional career in St. Louis as a Physician of the eclectic school at the same time being actively connected with several eclectic journals in the capacity of writer and also took an earnest part in the councils of the Eclectic National College, St. Louis, 1877-78, about which time his attention was forcibly directed to homoeopathy, through the serious illness of his wife, whose case refused to yield to the treatment either of his own eclectic or the allopathic school practitioners, but was subdued by homoeopathic treatment. Later on he was dean and professor of Materia Medica in the Post-Graduate School of Homoeopathics, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; dean and professor of material medica in Dunham Medical College, Chicago; dean and professor of material medica inj Hering Medical College, Chicago; and in 1905 he held the same chair in Hahnemann Medical College, Chicago. Thus for more than thirty-five years Dr. Kent had been a conspicuous figure in medical circles, and for more than twenty-five years in teaching and practice under the law of similia; and he is looked upon as one of the ablest teachers and exponents of the homoeopathic school in America. His contributions to the literature of the profession are known by their strength rather than their length, and include, more prominently, his Repertory, Homoeopathic Philosophy and Lectures on Materia Medica. Among the various professional associations of which he was a member, the more prominent of them were the Illinois State Homoeopathic Medical Society, the American Institute of Homoeopathy and the International Hahnemannian Association, besides which he held a honorary corresponding membership in the British Homoeopathic Medical Society. Kent died, on June 6, 1916 at Stevensville, Montana.
