Books on TCM and science

Studies and textbooks on TCM and science and Traditional Chinese Medicine, especially in comparison East and West.
The book Traditional Chinese Medicine between Science and Faith by Lee elaborates the essence of TCM and teaches it in everyday language, making it understandable to everyone. At the same time, the execution is accompanied by a scientific-theoretical discourse, which makes it clear that behind TCM is not a placebo art, but a scientific medical system. In addition, the book makes it intelligible to the reader by means of a knowledgeable analysis of the principles and mode of action in which cases the TCM in practice has the advantage over causal-analytical conventional medicine. Many case studies complete the work.
The present volume Chinese Medicine – Placebo, Science or Reality? von Schnorrenberger starts from original classical texts on Chinese medicine and acupuncture and places them in a context with the sources of traditional occidental thinking. Essential here is the conceptual similarity of the ancient Chinese Shen with the physique (nature) of Aristotle. On this basis, fashionable trends in Chinese medicine in the West are put into perspective. Chinese medicine is being highlighted as a deductive system, a fact that has been overlooked by most western authors on the subject. Thus, China’s ancient medicine for the West reaches the logical basis on which it is based in the country of origin since its beginnings. Documents on the anatomical foundations of Chinese medicine are presented and explained as meaningful for Western understanding. Similarities and differences between Far Eastern medicine and Orthodox western medicine are discussed, creating new perspectives for Chinese medicine, both their logical d. H. Rational orientation as well as their clinically successful, occasionally superior to Western medicine application in practice. The missing logic of so-called evidence based medicine (EBM) is discussed, and the traditional Chinese disease analysis Bian-Zheng is identified as the backbone of Chinese medicine, the character Zheng proof means evidence that contains sufficient substantive deduced confirmation and No statistical-artificial pseudo-evidence ‘needed anymore.
