Lesser Writings / Aphorisms & Precepts

This volume is published at the request of many of Doctor Kent’s admirers from all parts of the world. It contains remedies which have never before appeared in book form. They were published in medical journals several years ago and are all verified by Kent himself.

The various articles appearing are addresses and papers delivered by Doctor Kent at meetings both National and State; to students in classes at college covering a period of many years of his life.

The clinical cases published herewith are only a few of those reported by Doctor Kent and have been carefully selected. All are considered of great value to the student of Homoeopathy.

These are only a part of Doctor Kent’s writings and were selected from various libraries after considerable effort and are considered the best results of his pen. It is sincerely hoped by the publishers that this book will meet the expectations and be of value to its readers.

James Tyler Kent
James Tyler Kent (1849–1916) was an American physician. Prior to his involvement with homeopathy, Kent had practiced conventional medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. He discovered and "converted" to homeopathy as a result of his wife's recovery from a serious ailment using homeopathic methods.
In 1881, Kent accepted a position as professor of anatomy at the Homeopathic College of Missouri, an institution with which he remained affiliated until 1888. In 1890, Kent moved to Pennsylvania to take a position as Dean of Professors at the Post-Graduate Homeopathic Medical School of Philadelphia. In 1897 Kent published his magnum opus, Repertory of the Homœopathic Materia Medica. Kent moved to Chicago in 1903, where he taught at Hahnemann Medical College.
