CM 511 - Foundations of Classical Chinese Medicine I


Credit(s): 2.00

This course introduces students to the common principles that underlie all traditional nature sciences, as observed from the specific perspective of classical Chinese medicine. Core concepts include the holographic quality of nature (Dao; Heaven-Earth-Humanity), dynamism, complexity, the symbolic pattern language of the universe (yin-yang, wu xing, zangxiang), and the relationship between matter, energy and spirit (jing-qi-shen). The curriculum attempts to correlate the wisdom of these ancient concepts with contemporary insights gleaned from the quantum cosmology of modern physics and other contemporary sciences. Students learn how to critically read the introductory literature of the field. Note: May be taken concurrently with CM 521
