Chinese Medicine and Intercultural Philosophy

Theory, Methodology and Structure of Chinese Medicine


Friedrich G. Wallner, Fengli Lan and Martin J. Jandl

Chinese Medicine is an outstanding scientific proposition system with its own structural, methodological and theoretical prerequisites flowing into the specific practices that make Chinese Medicine popular in the Western world. However, we should be aware of the fact that Chinese Medicine is challenged in its existence because it is widely not understood. Fostering the understanding of Chinese Medicine in various aspects is, hence, the main aim of this book that delivers interesting insights into the discussions on current developments in Chinese Medicine research.
