Book Title:Medicine, Philosophy, and Religion in Ancient China
Author(s):Sivin, Nathan
Publisher Name:Variorum
Place of Publication:Aldershot, Hants.
Date of Publication:1995
Annotation:Intended as a companion volume to Science in Ancient China, this collection of essays compares Greek and Chinese philosophy, examines neo-Confucianism and the limits of empirical knowledge, and devotes two chapters to the examination of Taoism. The first essay distinguishes between two kinds of Taoism, one with no sociological meaning that he terms, “Philosophical,” and another with a liturgical practice focused on the divinity of the Tao that he calls, “Religious.” The focus of the second essay is on Taoism and science. This volume also contains an introductory bibliography of traditional Chinese medicine.
