Philippus Theophrastus Aureolus Bombastus von Hohenheim, getauft als Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim (* vermutlich 1493 in Egg, Kanton Schwyz; † 24. September 1541 in Salzburg), seit 1529 sich Paracelsus nennend, war ein Arzt, Alchemist, Astrologe, Mystiker und Philosoph. Die Medizin hat nach Paracelsus auf Natur- und Gotteserkenntnis zu fußen. Zum Verständnis der Dinge und damit auch der Krankheiten und ihrer richtigen Behandlung seien einerseits empirische Befunde, andererseits – und weitaus wichtiger – die Betrachtung des Großen und Ganzen notwendig: „Denn der Mensch kann nur vom Makrokosmos aus erfasst werden, nicht aus sich selbst heraus. Erst das Wissen um diese Übereinstimmung vollendet den Arzt“. Oft zitiert wird sein bekannter Ausspruch: „Alle Dinge sind Gift, und nichts ist ohne Gift; allein die Dosis machts, daß ein Ding kein Gift sei.“
Paracelsus (late 1493 – September 24, 1541), born Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, was a Swiss German philosopher, physician, botanist, astrologer, and general occultist. He is credited as the founder of toxicology. He is also a famous revolutionary for utilizing observations of nature, rather than referring to ancient texts, something of radical defiance during his time. He is credited for giving zinc its name, calling it zincum. Modern psychology often also credits him for being the first to note that some diseases are rooted in psychological conditions. Paracelsus' most important legacy is likely his critique of the scholastic methods in medicine, science and theology. Much of his theoretical work does not withstand modern scientific thought, but his insights laid the foundation for a more dynamic approach in the medical sciences. Paracelsus, sometimes called the father of toxicology, wrote: The dose makes the poison.
