Following the intent and style of the earlier works in this series,
the authors delve deeply into the etymology of the ancient written characters of Ling Shu.
The first part, Heart Master, makes clear classical distinctions between the various aspects of the heart that have been diversely translated as heart governor, heart protector, heart constrictor and pericardium.
The second part charts the developing concept of the triple heater from its early stages in the Nei Jing through the Nan Jing with particular reference to chapters of the Ling Shu. The spiritual meanings and textual implications are examined with great awareness and sensitivity.
Part of the Chinese Medicine From The Classics series.
