Pelikan intuits the medicinal properties of the plants described in this book through an intimate knowledge of the plants and a keen perception of their essential qualities as expressed in their form, their chemical composition, and their relationship to their environment. He then shows how these qualities correspond to processes of illness and healing in the human organism.
