Keywords: Homeopathy, Science, Education, Technology
AbstractThe use of historiographical methods may be of profit in elucidating homeopathic theory. As case study, Masi ElizaldeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s controversial hypothesis concerning a supposed plagiarism of a Thomas AquinasÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ 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.
