"A classic presentation of the internal consistency of Chinese medicine. It is a book one can by in anticipation of rereading and studying it for many years."
"This work is especially noteworthy for its detailed discussions of the general theoretical foundations of Chinese cosmology and such philosophical and religious principles as yin-yang, the "five elements" (wu-hsing, or what Porkert translates as the "five evolutive phases") and ch'i (matter-energy)... [It] is important for its emphasis on the dynamic-functional nature of the medical system or what Joseph Needham has called the organismic time-centeredness of Chinese ideology. In short, this is an impressive piece of philosophical, medical, and philological scholarship and represents the first serious attempt to decipher some of the meaning and significance of traditional Chinese medicine."
