The Routledge Handbook of Chinese Medicine is an extensive, interdisciplinary guide to the nature of traditional medicine and healing in the Chinese cultural region, and its plural epistemologies. Established experts and the next generation of scholars interpret the ways in which Chinese medicine has been understood and portrayed from the beginning of the empire (third century BCE) to the globalisation of Chinese products and practices in the present day, taking in subjects from ancient medical writings to therapeutic movement, to talismans for healing and traditional medicines that have inspired global solutions to contemporary epidemics. The volume is divided into seven parts: Longue Durée and Formation of Institutions and Traditions Sickness and Healing Food and Sex Spiritual and Orthodox Religious Practices The World of Sinographic Medicine Wider Diasporas Negotiating Modernity This handbook therefore introduces the broad range of ideas and techniques that comprise pre-modern medicine in China, and the historiographical and ethnographic approaches that have illuminated them. It will prove a useful resource to students and scholars of Chinese studies, and the history of medicine and anthropology. It will also be of interest to practitioners, patients and specialists wishing to refresh their knowledge with the latest developments in the field.

This title was first published in 2003. In laboratories around the world the active principles in traditional herbal medicines are being isolated and characterized. A systematic effort at the Chinese Academy of Sciences is underway to identify the structure-activity relationships that result from the link between chemistry and medicine that is permitted by this data. This book, which provides the only systematic English-language description of the chemical structures and pharmacological effects of compounds active in traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs), is now in its second edition. The new edition provides English-language monographs on over 9000 chemicals isolated from nearly 4000 natural sources used in Chinese medicine and features the addition of in-depth bioactivity data for many of the compounds. Effects and indications of the medicines are included. Extensive indexing permits cross-referencing among English, Chinese and Latin names for natural medicinal sources, effects and indications, and the chemical components of the medicines. The second edition of Traditional Chinese Medicines includes 2300 new compounds, 2400 additional plant sources, more CAS Registry Numbers, and more pharmacological data. The structure of the book has been extensively reorganised to make cross referencing the data much simpler. This new edition is therefore a substantial improvement on the first edition of this important reference on the structural chemistry of traditional Chinese medicines.

“Human nature is an area of great concern to educational psychologists. It is also a topic frequently discussed by ancient Chinese thinkers and teachers.” —Zhu Yongxin A detailed study of how modern psychology and ancient philosophy impacts education Drawing from his extensive background in psychology, years of historical research, and groundbreaking work in education, China’s acclaimed Professor Zhu Yongxin combines the disciplines of modern psychology and ancient philosophy in one essential volume. These enlightening articles and essays can be used as a starter kit by students and researchers alike. Divided into three informative sections, the book features: Case studies of applied psychology, including educational, personnel, criminal, military, medical, management, and dream psychology Insights of prominent Chinese figures and schools of thought, from Cheng Hao and Cheng Yi to Wang Fuzhi and Yan Yuan Reviews of ancient scholars and modern psychologists, from the lessons of Confucius to the social reforms and brain research of modern China For modern educators, the study of psychology has proven to be an invaluable academic discipline and applied science that helps us better understand the human mind and behavior. Many of its basic principles are not modern at all, but reach back hundreds, even thousands of years to the world’s greatest schools of thought—most notably those in ancient China. In Research of Native Chinese Psychology, China’s foremost educator Zhu Yongxin explores these timeless teachings and ideas which have formed the foundation of modern psychology, social reform, and educational excellence. Covering a wide range of topics, Yongxin takes us on a fascinating tour of the inquisitive mind, from the ancient debates on how we gain knowledge to the latest discoveries in brain research and beyond. Articles include: Basic Theoretical Issues of Ancient Chinese Educational Psychology Educational Psychological Thought in Modern China Psychological Thoughts of Metaphysicians Ancient Chinese Scholar’s Exploration of Zhi and Yi Analysis on Social Political Psychology of Chinese People Contributions of Ancient Chinese Scholars to Brain Research Chinese Psychology in the Social Reform Review of the Research on Chinese Psychology History By comparing and contrasting our rich cultural heritage with more recent examples of applied psychology, Zhu Yongxin brings a refreshing modern perspective to the wisdom and traditions of ancient China. To quote Confucius, “I am not one who was born in the possession of knowledge; I am one who is fond of antiquity, and earnest in seeking it there.”
