This translation of a Chinese text published in 1987 gives us a window into the practical philosophy of modem Chinese medical scholars and clinicians, as well as an insight into the historical development of psychology in China. Although schizophrenia is more common than AIDS/HIV, most people know far less about it. This fascinating book about how schizophrenia is perceived, experienced, and treated in another culture advances our understanding of one of humankind's great afflictions. Its basic message - that Chinese medicine has much to offer for the future of psychiatric medicine - comes across with convincing clarity. The text introduces the varieties of schizophrenia according to the parameters of Western biomedical understanding and the essentials of Chinese differential diagnosis. Its focus is on the optimal applications of acupuncture and TCM in treating mental diseases. Besides giving a thorough review of historical treatments, it describes a variety of successful therapies and treatment protocols, including studies where an expensive drug or a treatment with severe side effects has been used in a fractional dosage and supplemented by acupuncture or other traditional Chinese treatments.
