    Huang Di Nei Jing Ling Shu: The Ancient Classic on Needle Therapy

    The complete Chinese text with an annotated English translation.

    The Ling shu, also known as the Ling shu jing, is part of a unique and seminal trilogy of ancient Chinese medicine, together with the Su wen and Nan jing. It constitutes the foundation of a two-thousand-year healing tradition that remains active to this day. Its therapeutic approach is based on a purely secular science of nature, with natural laws serving as guidelines for human behavior and medical treatment. No other text offers such broad insights into the thinking and manifest action of the authors of the time as does the Ling shu. Following an introduction, this volume contains the full original Chinese text of the Ling shu, an English translation of all 81 chapters, notes on difficult-to-grasp passages and possible changes in the text during the passage of time on the basis of Chinese primary and secondary literature of the past two thousand years and the translator Paul Unschuld's own work. The Ling shu reveals itself as a completely rational work, and in many of its statements, a surprisingly modern one. It will provide the foundation for comparisons with the nearly contemporaneous Corpus Hippocraticum of ancient Europe and today's iterations of traditional Chinese Medicine as well.

    The Fall and Rise of China. Healing the Trauma of History

    For over a century, from the First Opium War in 1839-42 to the end of the Second World War, China was repeatedly humiliated by Western imperial powers and by its smaller neighbour, Japan. For a time the Middle Kingdom seemed on the verge of becoming a pawn of foreign interests. Then, in a process unmatched in history, this great culture recovered vigorously from its seemingly hopeless plight - so much so that today the state, its leaders and its burgeoning economic and military might are globally acknowledged and not infrequently feared.
    The Fall and Rise of China: Healing the Trauma of History traces the country's development in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries up to the present day and offers an explanation of the collective mentality that enabled China, confronted y the superiority of Western science and technology, to commit to the unsparing selfdiagnosis that enabled its impressive rise and radical transformation. The country identified the aspects of Western civilization it had to adopt in order to remove the cultural impediments to its own renaissance. Profoundly wounded, China prescribed for itself a therapy that followed the same principle used in Chinese medicine: that the cause of the sickness lies first and foremost within oneself. Prevention and treatment must therefore always begin with one's own deficiencies and mistakes. In this powerful polemic Paul Unschuld presents an entirely new understanding and analysis of China's past and offers fascinating insights into its possible future.

    Traditionelle Chinesische Medizin

    Dieses Buch erläutert Ursprung und Geschichte der Chinesischen Medizin von ihren Anfängen in der Antike bis in die Gegenwart. Es schildert ihre Eigenart als säkularer Gegenentwurf zu dem bis heute in China weit verbreiteten Glauben an den Einfluß von Göttern, Ahnen und Dämonen auf die Gesundheit der Lebenden und verdeutlicht die spezifisch chinesische Weltanschauung, die dieser Heilkunde zugrunde liegt. Der Autor zeigt die Gründe auf für die zwei Jahrtausende währende Vielfalt therapeutischer Ansätze in der chinesischen Kultur und den Bedeutungsverlust der Chinesischen Medizin vor dem Hintergrund der chinesischen Reformpolitik im 20. Jahrhundert, und er beschreibt die kreative Rezeption der sogenannten Traditionellen Chinesischen Medizin in den westlichen Industrienationen seit den 1970er Jahren.

    Chinese Traditional Healing The Berlin Collections of Manuscript Volumes from 16th through the Early 20th Century

    Research on past knowledge, practices, personnel and institutions of Chinese health care has focused on printed text for many decades. The Berlin collections of handwritten Chinese volumes on health and healing from the past 400 years provide a hitherto unprecedented access to a wide range of data. They extend the reach of medical historiography beyond the literature written by and for a small social elite to the reality of health care as practiced by private households, lay healers, pharmacists, professional doctors, magicians, itinerant healers and others. The nearly 900 volumes surveyed here for the first time demonstrate the heterogeneity of Chinese traditional healing. They evidence the continuation of millennia-old therapeutic approaches long discarded by the elite, and they show continuous adaptation to more recent trends.
