Typology in Homeopathy by LEON VANNIER, MD, Paris 1930

Dr. Vannier describes eight basic prototypes, named from Greek and Roman divinities with definite individualizing traits. These are Mars, Saturn, Apollo, Venus, Jupiter, Mercury, Luna, and Terra. Each type is thoroughly described in terms of dominant characteristics, morphology, mind, character, diseases to which they are prone, and changes that commonly occur with age and in specific circumstances.

Dr Vannier makes it clear that no human being is a pure prototype, exhibiting one set of characteristics alone, and that in his view two, three or even four types will be found in one person, either together in varying degree, or else in succession. These prototypes are combined into metatypes.
