George Vithoulkas, in his epochal materia medica lectures, managed to get to the very heart of many new and old remedies, enabling us to better imagine and so remember them. His pupils published an unauthorized short materia medica based on these great lectures, known as the "Essence of Materia Medica", which is still very popular and which inspired a whole generation of homeopaths. Incidentally, this is very like what happened with Kent's lectures, which were also written up by his pupils and became a very popular materia medica. But then Vithoulkas decided to publish his own long-awaited complete materia medica, which he started many years ago with this series.
It is substantially more comprehensive than the Essences. We might compare the Viva with the late work of the German writer Herman Hesse, "The Glass Bead Game", whereas the Essences is similar to his early short masterpiece “Siddhartha”. Both have their own merits and the reader can decide which they prefer.
The first 12 volumes of a big edition, the remaining volumes are yet to be published.
