No, whether Hahnemann secretly borrowed from Paracelsus, then denied it, or whether he independently arrived at conclusions similar to those arrived at centuries earlier by Paracelsus, makes very little difference in the final analysis (it would be of historical interest only) However, it brings up a very interesting question: the Paracelsic concept of similars is somewhat different than the Hahnemannian concept: could there be two "laws of similars", or perhaps two aspects of the same underlying Law? Could there be a "Law of Similars of Quality" (the Paraclesic concept) and a "Law of Similars of Effects" (the pathogenetically experimentally based Hahnemannian concept of Similia simillibus curentur)?
