BASCHIN, Marion. How patients built up the practice of the lay homeopath Clemens von Bönninghausen: Quantitative and qualitative aspects of patient history. Dynamis [online]. 2011, vol.31, n.2, pp.475-495. ISSN 0211-9536. http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S0211-95362011000200011.
Statistics seem to give little information about individuals' fates. With the help of patient journals, the interwoven connections between quantitative and qualitative aspects of historical research work can be shown. This example focuses on the patients who, between 1829 and 1864, built up the practice of the lay homeopath Clemens Maria Franz von Bönninghausen in Münster, Westphalia. Questions of practice, the social structure of the clientele, and the diseases Bönninghausen treated are also considered.
