Book review by Dr Sunila 

Environment is the external conditions, resources, stimuli etc. with which an organism interacts. Environment may be:

  • Natural environment:  all living and non-living things that occur naturally on Earth.
  • Built environment:  constructed surroundings that provide the setting for human activity, ranging from the large-scale civic surroundings to the personal places.

Murphy’s Repertory
The homoeopathic medical repertory by Robin Murphy was designed to be a modern, practical & easy to use reference guide to the vast Homoeopathic Materia Medica. All of Kent’s repertory & large sections of Kneer’s repertory were used as the foundation for building the new repertory. 70 different chapters were created & arranged in alphabetical order from the original 37 chapters. Next, all rubric & sub rubrics within each chapter were sorted into an alphabetical format. Thus simplifying Kent’s complicated system for arranging rubrics & sub rubrics.

The formatting for Homoeopathic Medical Repertory is similar to Kent’s Repertory with the strongest remedies designated in bold- capitals (3 points), next bold italics (2 points) & plain type (1 point).
