This book is the first thorough introduction into the scientific basis of anthroposophy and anthroposophical medicine in the context of academic science. On a sound epistemological basis and in the context of current debates it analyses basic concepts of physics, chemistry, genetics, morphogenesis, biology, neurobiology, psychology, and philosophy of mind, with an emphasis on the problems of life, mind-body interactions, and free will. The result is a non-reductionistic anthropology acknowledging the emergent properties of body, life, soul, and spirit as equally real entities. This concurs with the basic concepts of anthroposophy and anthroposophical medicine, the justification of which is discussed in relation to the history and methodology of science as well as evidence based medicine.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Das Werk besticht in seiner stringenten Gedankenfuhrung, in seinen gut erarbeiteten Argumentation, in seiner strengen und differenzierten Begrifflichkeit sowie in seinen Anknupfungen an moderne Forschungen aus den Naturwissenschaften."
(Renatus Ziegler, dieDrei Zeitschrift fur Anthroposophie in Wissenschaft, Kunst und sozialem Leben, Mai 2017)

"In summary, this book offers both an excellent review of the historical development of the scientific method in biology and medicine and a constructive critique of the same. [...] It will serve as a valuable resource to all who are interested in epistemological and ethical questions in medicine and its organic development into the future.">BR> (Branko Furst, Chanticleer Volume 27, Issue 6, 2017)
