Linguistic methodology for representing and clustering rubrics (Cluster analysis)

 Recently I'v been looking for the common lexical ground shared by Sankaran's miasms and Scholten's Stages - so far with encouraging results. With care we can get some correlation between Stages/Miasms in *Minerals* and in *Plants*, so that 'Stage 17' for example includes all the 'antisocial' remedies, not just minerals.  The question of Plant or Mineral doesnt come into it initially - its the antisocial behavoiur we notice first -  so have the great homepathic authors sold us a pup in insiting that Kingdom Differentiation is the first step ... ?
Ferdinad De Saussure defines 'Langue' as the totality of the language and 'Parole' as the words we use most often e.g. in Homeopathy ... quite a small sub-set of what is available. The parole of Homeopathy includes keywords, concepts, themes, rubrics and so on.

These are the keywords we feed in to any analysis. However, these keywords trigger a huge spectrum of spurious associations across all the Kingdoms.

The answer? To reorganise conventional concepts and groups by grouping similar rubrics or keywords according to lexical distance or similarity.

A tree diagram (dendrogram) would highlight the lexical distance of the rubric DOMINEERING from the rest of a group of rubrics which included TIMIDITY and YIELDING. The result of this clustering method is a linguistic tree for each remedy based on lexical similarity … e.g. where the node TIMIDITY is not far from YEILDING and many branches away from the antonym DOMINEERING.

Since the remedy Silica is an oxide  the properties of the oxide enter into the picture  - it adds selfishness and a feeling of being abused (the source of Silicas' defiance and audacity). The main idea is that Silica is fragile and easily abused. The properties imparted to the remedy by the Oxide stand out clearly. This is a brilliant way to re-present Scholtens methodology.

In this simplified dendrogram there are 4 or 5 main lexical groups (leaves or nodes) in the tree …

Anxiety group (Sil)
Affection group (Sil)
Yielding group (Sil)
Audacity/Anger group (Sil + Oxide)
Abuse group (Oxide)

Silica - rubrics and concepts dendrogram

The branch lengths and junctions on the tree show how closely the neighbouring groups are related. All that remains is to match the clinical data to the remedy tree. These are all common rubrics, so the detail in the silica dendrogram above is only sufficient to create a new group of 'Silica-like' remedies...

[ Lyc nux-v sep sil staph puls ign sulph ]

This is the most minimal rubric data we need to describe the group. Once we include 'family' or 'stage' specific keywords i.e. the strange, rare and peculiar symptoms of a remedy the dendrogram is complete and identifies the individual remedy.

A Venn Diagramm is an alternative way of graphically and numerically representing remedy data. When we were taught to differentiate Silca (chronic of Puls) from Pulsatilla the tutor used a similar visual representation to good effect.  This is how the ' A.P.G. Tree of Life' is represented in the Plants Database project.
