A translation of Zhu Dan-xi's Ge Zki Yu Lun.
Extra Treatises Based on Investigafion and Inquiry is a collection of medical essays by the great Jin/Yuan dynasty master, Zhu Zhen-heng, better known as Zhu Dan-xi. Zhu Dan-xi was one of the four great masters of internal medicine of his time and his theories have indelibly shaped the development of Traditional Chinese Medicine up to the present day. Those that know Zhu Dan-xi remember him as the founder of the Zi Yin Pai or School of Enriching Yin. However, Zhu was the lineal inheritor of the teachings of Liu Wan-su, founder of the School of Cool - Cold (Medicinals), and of Li Dong-yuan, founder of the School of Supplementing Earth. In fact, Zhu's theories on enriching yin were only an extension and further refinement of these two preceding great masters' works. Thus it can rightly be said that Zhu Dan-xi was the culmination and fulfillment of Jin/Yuan Neoconfucian medicine.
In these essays, Zhu discusses his theories on ministerial fire and the importance of enriching yin. In addition, he discusses at length the roles that diet, sex, and lifestyle all play in disease causation and prevention. As a compendium of Zhu's theoretical writings, this book makes a nice and also important companion volume to The Heart and Essence of Dan-xi's Methods of Treatment. In that book, Zhu discusses the clinical treatment of a large number of diseases. And because Zhu carried forward the methods and ideas of Li Dong-yuan, readers of Li's Treatise on the Spleen and Stomach will also find much of great value in this book. All three of these books are part of Blue Poppy Press' Great Masters Series.
