2nd Wave of Philosophy

The second wave of philosophy in chiropractic centers on the writings of D.D. Palmer. Starting in 1908 and 1909, Palmer dedicated his time to writing. He called his journal The Chiropractor\’s Adjustor. His goal was to adjust the many and varied approaches to chiropractic. He wanted to take back his profession from his many students and to define the new terminology now carved into the law. By 1910, he gathered all of his articles together and published his first book. Soon after his death in 1913, his second book was published by his wife. In the interim, his students (including his son) were running schools and writing books.
