Andrew T. Still's thorough account of osteopathic medicine details the discoveries and cases which contributed to the development of osteopathy. Written and published at the end of the nineteenth century, Philosophy of Osteopathy is a manual which attempts to overview the major aspects of the osteopathic discipline. Although much of Still's understanding is outdated in comparison to modern medicine, his accessible descriptions made this book a valuable reference text for aspiring osteopaths and physiotherapists for many years following its original publication. Chapters generally concern distinct areas of the body, as well as some theoretical questions which - at the time - hadn't received an answer. Andrew T. Still regards good osteopathy as an art form, and thus does not shy away from a passionate tone during parts of the text. Unusual subjects, such as the uses of earwax and the possibility that man has undergone a slow decline in his bodily resilience, lend color to the book.

First published in 1899, “Philosophy of Osteopathy” is an exposition of the principles of osteopathy by its creator Andrew Taylor Still. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in alternative medicine, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “Some Introductory Remarks”, “Osteopathic Explorations”, “The Head”, “Ear Wax and Its Uses”, “Disease of the Chest”, “The Lymphatics”, “The Diaphragm”, “Liver, Bowels and Kidneys”, “The Blood”, “The Fascia”, “Fevers”, “Scarlet Fever and Smallpox”, “A Chapter of Wonders and Some Valuable Questions”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

Philosophy of Osteopathy by A. T. (Andrew Taylor) Still NOT A WORK OF COMPILATION. To readers of my book on the Philosophy of Osteopathy, I wish to say that I will not tire you with a book of compilations just to sell to the anxious reader. As I have spent thirty years of my life reading and following rules and remedies used for curing, and learned in sorrow it was useless to listen to their claims, for instead of getting good, I obtained much harm therefrom, I asked for, and obtained a mental divorce from them, and I want it to be understood that drugs and I are as far apart as the East is from the West; now, and forever. Henceforth I will follow the dictates of nature in all I say or write. AUTHORS QUOTED. I quote no authors but God and experience when I write, or lecture to the classes or the masses, because no book written by medical writers can be of much use to us, and it would be very foolish to look to them for advice and instruction on a science they know nothing of. They are illy able to advise for themselves, they have never been asked to advise us, and I am free to say but few persons who have been pupils of my school have tried to get wisdom from medical writers and apply it as worthy to be taught as any part of Osteopathy, philosophy or practice. Several books have been compiled, called "Principles of Osteopathy." They may sell but will fail to give the knowledge the student desires. We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.

Many of my friends have been anxious ever since Osteopathy became an established fact, that I should write a treatise on the science. But I was never convinced that the time was ripe for such a production, nor am I even now convinced that this is not a little premature. Osteopathy is only in its infancy, it is a great unknown sea just discovered, and as yet we are only acquainted with its shore-tide. When I saw others who had not more than skimmed the surface of the science, taking up the pen to write books on Osteopathy, and after having carefully examined their productions, found they were drinking from the fountains of old schools of drugs, dragging back the science to the very systems from which I divorced myself so many years ago, and realized that hungry students were ready to swallow such mental poison, dangerous as it was, I became fully awakened to the necessity of some sort of Osteopathic literature for those wishing to be informed. This book is free from quotations from medical authors, and differs from them in opinion on almost every important question. I do not expect it to meet their approval; such a thing would be unnatural and impossible. It is my object in this work to teach principles as I understand them, and not rules. I do not instruct the student to punch or pull a certain bone, nerve or muscle for a certain disease, but by a knowledge of the normal and abnormal, I hope to give a specific knowledge for all diseases.

The Philosophy and Mechanical Principles of Osteopathy' is one of the landmark works in the field of Osteopathy, written by its founder, Andrew Taylor Still. Still was an American surgeon and physician who turned his attention to developing a system of treatment less invasive than the conventional treatments of his day. He investigated many 19th century practices and was inspired by their relatively tame side-effects. He believed that manipulation of the muscular skeletal system was the key to alleviating many illnesses, and developed his techniques into what he called Osteopathy (Greek roots osteon- for bone and -pathos for suffering). He promoted his system widely and founded the American School of Osteopathy, the world's first osteopathic school, in Missouri. We are republishing this work with a brand new introductory biography of the author.

For the first time, a 60-person team of internationally renowned editors and authors presents a textbook of osteopathic medicine that is oriented towards clinical symptoms. Introductory chapters on history, philosophy and the spread of osteopathy are followed by a presentation of its scientific basis that clearly demonstrates how firmly osteopathy is rooted in science. Further chapters cover osteopathic research, diagnosis and principles of treatment. Two parts on therapeutic strategies in osteopathic practice form the core of this book. The first is divided into regions of the body, the second into clinical specialties that offer opportunities for osteopathic treatment. In both clinical parts, osteopathic therapy is presented in the entirety in which it is actually practiced - without the common but artificial separation of parietal, visceral and craniosacral treatment. First, the clinical symptom is explained from a medical perspective, then the osteopathic perspective and and treatment is presented. Thus, the title is not only suitable for conveying a profound understanding of osteopaths in training, be they doctors or non-medical practitioners, but also as a clinical reference of osteopathic medicine for everyday treatment.

Erstmals legt hier ein 60-köpfiges, international renommiertes Team ein an klinischen Bildern orientiertes Lehrwerk der osteopathischen Medizin vor. Die Darstellung der wissenschaftlichen Grundlagen zeigt deutlich, wie sehr die Osteopathie auf der Grundlage auch schulmedizinisch gesicherter Erkenntnisse beruht. Das Kernstück bilden mehr als 40 Kapitel zu therapeutischen Strategien in der osteopathischen Praxis. Es werden Strategien nach Körperregionen behandelt und nach Spezialdisziplinen wie Osteopathie in der Pädiatrie, Geriatrie, Psychologie, Schmerztherapie, Neurologie, Rheumatologie oder Sportmedizin. Das Besondere: In den klinischen Kapiteln wird die osteopathische Therapie in der Gesamtheit dargestellt, in der sie auch zur Anwendung kommt, also ohne künstliche Trennung von parietaler, viszeraler und kraniosakraler Behandlung. Dabei wird zunächst das Krankheitsbild aus schulmedizinischer Sicht dargestellt und dann die osteopathische Sicht und Behandlung aufgezeigt.
