Historical Timeline of Chinese Medicine
Understanding the Past
A brief article written by the late Professor Wang Jinhuai (1935-200), daoist, calligrapher and friend.
A true Daoist at heart, the late Professor Wang Jin-Huai (1935-2002) was a calligrapher, classics scholar, and practitioner of Chinese medicine in the Confucian style. Researching traditional medical texts was one of his great loves, particularly The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine. The excerpt translated above is taken from a textbook he authored for use by westerners learning the language and concepts of Chinese medicine before beginning medical studies. It was translated by Roger W. Jacques and edited by Andrew Nugent-Head, MSOM. We greatly miss his presence as a resource, teacher, and friend.
