Abstract

The use of historiographical methods may be of profit in elucidating homeopathic theory. As case study, Masi Elizalde’s controversial hypothesis concerning a supposed plagiarism of a Thomas Aquinas’ text by Hahnemann is analysed. Philological comparison, analysis of historical context and the application of the most modern approaches in the History of Science are shown as useful tools.
