Stephen Paulus published a substantial philosophical paper in 2013 within the International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine. The author reviewed the writings of A.T. Still to extend the core principles of osteopathic philosophy, terminating ongoing oversimplification. Ten revised principles were introduced and explained which attempt to outline our historically distinctive philosophy to health care. These principles aim to guide osteopathy in practice, being an approach that expresses its philosophy in clinical context. This paper provides well-processed philosophical approaches able to guide the osteopaths state of mind in education and clinical practice.
