Current situation, methods and perspectives
"Science and research are integral elements of anthroposophic medicine. These however are not confined to scientivic methods and criteria, but - as in the case of treatment - go a step further. The principal aim of anthroposophic medical research ist to gain an understanding of the human being as an entity, and not to study individual physical reactions. One of the fundamental tasks of anthroposophic medicine is to overcome the arbitrary division of medicine into countless subjects, each with their own distinct foundations and terminology, which can sometimes lead to interdisciplinary conflicts and often lead to adverse therapeutic interactions."
