From Manly P. Hall's opening segment: "...Paracelsus has become the central figure in a heated controversy involving both the theory and practice of the healing arts. Historians applauding his progress and originality, at the same time bewail his mystical speculations and his excursions into the fields of animal magnetism and electromagnetic therapy. He has come to be regarded as a most complex man, combining a high degree of skilled observation with a variety of superstitious beliefs."
