The Reasoning of Traditional Chinese Medicine
The new book by Professor Song Xuan Ke, Director and Principal of The Asante Academy of Chinese Medicine, was officially published on the 31st December 2022 by World Scientific Press.
Many months of effort and hard work went into the creation of this book, with input and assitance from a number of different individuals, culminating in a title which serves as an easily accessible introduction to the reasoning and philosopy of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The Reasoning of Traditional Chinese Medicine is intended as an introduction to TCM for students, practitioners, or people with a general interest in Chinese medicine. It provides concise and compact delivery of TCM’s history, philosophy, theory, and treatment principles. Professor Ke has approached this from the perspective of the reasoning behind Chinese medicine, its philosophical foundations, and its approach to treatment, but from the unqiue perspective of his 40 years of clinical practice and teaching. The Reasoning of Traditional Chinese Medicine is accompanied by clear and bold graphical illustrations to allow for easier understanding.
The book is available through the main Asante website in both Hardcover and Paperback formats.
