9780520253582: A Dictionary of the Huang Di Nei Jing Su Wen

This dictionary reflects the English meanings of Chinese characters and character compounds laid down in the annotated edition of the Huang Di Nei Jing Su Wen, translated by Hermann Tessenow and Paul U. Unschuld. The Huang Di Nei Jing Su Wen is a seminal text of ancient Chinese medicine and natural philosophy. It reflects empirical knowledge and the doctrines of yin-yang and Five Agents in the perception of the human body and its organs, qi and the blood, pathogenic agents, concepts of disease and diagnosis, and a variety of therapies, including acupuncture. The original printing of this title contained an enclosed CD containing two concordances that list all characters along the pinyin-alphabetical sequence. These contents can now be accessed on the product page of the website under "Downloads" (http://www.ucpress.edu/book.php?isbn=9780520253582).

Review:

“Tessenow and Unschuld . . . have provided a powerful tool for verifying and deepening our understanding of the text, and developed a format for future publications that will have a lasting impact.” (Times Literary Supplement (TLS) 2009-02-06)
