In this classic introductory work on spiritual medicine, Rudolf Steiner worked in unique literary, collaboration with the physician Ita Wegman. Their aim was to revitalize the art of healing through spiritual knowledge -- yet, in so doing, they did not underrate or dismiss modern scientific medicine but illumined it beyond its present materialistic outlook to a fuller realization of the human condition. As Ita Wegman wrote in her preface: "The aim was not to underestimate scientific medicine in an amateurish way; it was given full recognition. But it was important to add to existing knowledge the insights that can come from true perception of the spirit, enabling us to understand the processes of illness and healing."
Today this new extension of practical medicine, known as "anthroposophical medicine," is used and valued by many physicians around the world.
