At a time when reductionist and mechanical views of the Human Being dominate our Society and Medicine and more holistic approaches are being attacked in the name of Science, this seminar gives the opportunity to hear the scientific and epistemological foundations of another paradigm
Public Seminar arranged jointly by the Medical and Scientific Sections of the School for Spiritual Science
Prof. Peter Heusser is the author of “Science and Anthroposophy” in which he surveys the major branches of science and shows them to be compatible with more holistic and spiritual understanding of the world and humanity. His contributions relate to the themes covered in this book. He is Emeritus Professor of Medical Theory, Integrative Medicine and Anthroposophic Medicine at Witten-Herdecke University.
