These are the real questions of many young homoeopaths. This book may not completely, but definitely to a greater extend answers these questions.Distinguishing features:- Practical guideline to extract mental symptoms.- Easy and comprehensive explanation of rubrics of mind.-Comparison among seemingly similar rubrics, for their accurate application.Some of the other features of this book are as follows-1. Almost each rubric is explained with examples.2. Examples from life incidences of the patients, direct version of the patients and observations made by physician, are mentioned under many of the rubrics intended to make them more practical.3. Related Miasm and Temperament are mentioned in most of the rubrics, which indicates that, the rubric mostly found or comes under that miasm or temperament for better anamnesis and individualization of the patient.4. Meaning of the rubrics has been taken from genuine sources and explained in simple language.5. Meaning in Indian national language ‘Hindi’ with Hindi fonts has been given for easy comprehension of Indian readers- but usually limited within one sentence.6. As the similar rubrics are very difficult to differentiate, so we have made comparisons of near about one hundred groups of rubrics and kept it under a separate chapter ‘Comparisons’. A reference to ‘Comparison’ chapter is mentioned in the main chapter ‘Explanation of rubrics of the mind’, under each rubric which has been compared.7. A chapter named ‘Human temperaments and homoeopathy’ is added for better understanding of case taking in relation to temperament.8. A special chapter is mentioned at the beginning of the book as ‘Eliciting the Mental symptoms and their corresponding rubrics’. In this chapter we have described the process of case taking from the time of appointment taken by the patient up to the time he leaves our chamber. Not only a description, but also we have tried our best to make the process of case taking ‘live’ in the mind of readers in an animated manner.9. We have tried our most to maintain the genuineness of meanings of the rubrics and explained them in an unadulterated form and by referring Materia medica of their corresponding medicines.10. A chapter named ‘Classifying the Rubrics into Different Categories’ is added to classify the mental rubrics into different groups basing different themes, in order to make learning more comprehensible.11. Another special chapter is mentioned in the last of the book as ‘case examples’, to understand the practical aspect of the whole subject of the book. In this chapter we have given some practical case examples, with questions of the physician and the answers he got.12. We have tried to mention the ‘contrasting rubric’ under many of the rubrics which bear quite the opposite meaning to them, hoping that it will somehow help to understand the rubrics in depth.
