The Chinese approach to health and healing is a rich and complex tradition, encompassing disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the full spectrum of illnesses, as well as offering a holistic approach to mental health. More than a system of medicine in the Western sense of the term, the Chinese approach to health care reflects the Taoist belief in the importance of promoting balance and harmony in body, mind, and spirit. In traditional Chinese medicine, this goal is achieved through nutrition, herbs, acupuncture, massage, exercise, meditation, and other holistic methods that restore the natural patterns of the human system. This book is an accessible and highly readable introduction to all the major aspects of this vast tradition. Topics covered include: The foundation of traditional medicine in Chinese history The theory of chi (energy) and how it influences health The Chinese approach to health, happiness, and longevity The use of Chinese herbal medicine and herbal formulas Diet and nutrition as a form of preventive medicine Acupuncture, acupressure, and massage-including sample techniques for self-massage The practice of chee-gung, or "moving meditation," as a means of promoting good health Meditation and internal alchemy Suggestions for further reading and other resources

1239 руб.
The last 50 years have seen the popularity of Chinese medicine grow exponentially. In China, Korea, Japan and Singapore, Chinese medicine has been incorporated into their healthcare systems to varying degrees. In the West, it is no longer uncommon for patients to consult Chinese medicine doctors, many of whom are non-Chinese. However, among Christians in many parts of the developed world, Chinese medicine is still viewed with suspicion and negativity. Are these fears justified? How can we better understand the roots and practices of Chinese medicine?The Dao of Healing takes us on an in-depth exploration of the histories and philosophies that have shaped both Western biomedicine and Chinese medicine in order that we might make informed judgements about them. If our call is to “love our neighbours”, we need to be able to dialogue with them on the basis of mutual respect and understanding. Let this book be the catalyst for meaningful and productive conversations across the divide.

Guoan Luo Systems Biology for Traditional Chinese Medicine

The application of systems biology methods to Traditional Chinese Medicine Emphasizing the harmony of the human body with the environment, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has evolved over thousands of years. It is a systemic theory derived from clinical experience, the philosophy of holism and systematology, and the belief that man is an integral part of nature. Systems Biology for Traditional Chinese Medicine describes how the latest methods in systems biology can be applied to TCM, providing a comprehensive resource for the modernization and advancement of TCM as well as general drug discovery efforts. It is the first comprehensive work to propose a system-to-system research methodology to study the interaction between TCM and the human body and its applications in drug research and development. Using three popular traditional Chinese medicines—Shuanglongfang, Qingkailing, and Liushenwan—as examples, the authors set forth case examples demonstrating how to find material groups, perform efficacy screenings, and conduct safety evaluations of TCM. The book also: Describes the mechanisms of TCM at the molecular and systems levels using chemomics, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and bioinformatics Places modern scientific technologies within the context of TCM, helping drug researchers improve experimental designs and strategies Illustrates how a systems biology approach is compatible with TCM's traditional, holistic therapeutic strategies and treatment modalities Presents topics of current interest, such as integrated global systems biology and the application of chemometrics research to herbal medicines This book not only opens a new pathway for the continued development of TCM, but also for systems biology. In addition, it fosters collaboration and discussion among Eastern and Western scientists by applying systems biology to TCM.

Master's Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Law - Media, Multimedia Law, Copyright, grade: 1, University of Limerick (Irish World Academy of Music and Dance), course: Ethnomusicology, language: English, abstract: Copyright law represents a cultural bargain: to encourage creativity, authors are granted time-limited monopolies over tangible expressions of their creative works. The incentive to create is thus balanced against the general public good, which includes the value of a healthy intellectual commons. This intellectual property bargain has now been institutionalised internationally through trade treaties and national and international laws. In the case of traditional cultural expressions, though, the bargain appears to fall down.First, there seems to be no evidence that creativity within most traditional cultures is or has been contingent upon the granting of such monopolies for exploitation. Second, in the case of traditional cultures, concepts such as "author", "expression" and "creative work" can be extremely slippery. Third, the concept of creativity within many traditional cultures does not automatically support the idea that cultural artefacts are in fact created by individual authors.Using Irish traditional music as an example of a community-based traditional art form, I show that authors create new expressions within such cultures only through the implicit or explicit engagement with other cultural actors. As such, the concept of...

Nathan R Large, Laine M Lundquist Empyrean Stories. Short Tales of Empyrean Dreams

902 руб.
Our Empyrean Dreams are stories from a future civilization, where Humankind is only one of several star-faring cultures struggling to coexist in a shared galaxy. The most powerful of these cultures are joined together in a treaty organization known as the Collective. Commerce and self-interest are the binding principles of the Collective: member states hold standing to the degree their culture proves its economic power and value to the whole. The ruling cultures of the Collective distinguish themselves by their unique innovations and capabilities; the Humans of Terra were fortunate to possess talents sufficient to earn membership. Outside of the Collective’s elite, many more sentient species exist, either tolerating this authority as members or rejecting the Collective entirely. An uneasy peace holds both within and without this interstellar civilization. Most intelligent beings are more interested in pursuing their personal lives and goals and less concerned about galactic politics. They study, work, build, fight, and love as best they can within their own cultures and worlds. A few sentients find themselves drawn across borders: across cultures, across star systems, or even across realities. Scholars catch glimpses of how old, complex, and strange the Universe really is. Diplomats encounter the frayed threads of alliance and must decide whether to bind or cut them. Explorers traverse the tangled webs of civilization and navigation. Criminals seek advantage in the cracks of ...

Contemporary Chinese Art and Film. Theory Applied and Resisted

2839 руб.
The present volume focuses on the uses of theory originating in non-Chinese places in the creation, curating, and criticism of contemporary Chinese visual culture.In the past two decades, contemporary Chinese art and film have attracted a great deal of media and academic attention in the West, and scholars have adopted a variety of approaches in Chinese film and visual studies. The present volume focuses on the uses and status of theory originating in non-Chinese places in the creation, curating, narration, and criticism of contemporary Chinese visual culture (broadly defined to include traditional media in the visual arts as well as cinema, installation, video, etc.). Contributors reflect on the written and, even more interestingly, the unwritten assumptions on the part of artists, critics, historians, and curators in applying or resisting Western theories. The essays in the present volume demonstrate clearly that Western theory can be useful in explicating Chinese text, as long as it is applied judiciously; the essays, taken as a whole, also suggest that cultural exchange is never a matter of one-way street. Historically, ideas from traditional Chinese aesthetics have also traveled to the West, and it is a challenge to examine what travels and what does not, as well as what makes such travel possible or impossible. The present volume thus provides us an opportunity to rethink travels of theories and texts across cultures, languages, disciplines, and media."The authors i...

Art of Modern Oriental Management. Applying the Chinese, Japanese and Korean Management Styles at Work

4789 руб.
This book aims to present an overview of Chinese, Japanese and Korean modern management styles. The cultures of China, Japan and Korea are influenced by Confucianism, Daoism and Buddhism. As such, there are some basic similarities in their management styles. As business operations become more internationalised, the management styles among Chinese, Japanese and Korean companies have blurred the lines of distinction between Western and Eastern cultures. The need for Western managers to adapt to Asian way of doing business, and likewise for Asian companies to understand Western business practices, means that managers have to bridge the gaps and adopt the best management practices containing both Western and Eastern elements.Unlike the traditional approach of setting clear differentiation between Western and Eastern cultures, this book looks at Oriental management from a modern perspective, that is, the fusion of Western and Eastern management styles. By using a multifaceted approach to understanding modern Oriental management, the author stresses the complexities of the business environment in China, Japan and Korea. He suggests that Western theories of management are applicable to Eastern cultural context with some adaptations to the local environment. The author also offers valuable insights into the management styles of Oriental managers by providing a critical perspective of their thought processes in simple yet highly relevant illustrations of models and frameworks.

Yifu Chen The Compatibility between Patent Law and Traditional Chinese Medicine

7075 руб.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a medical system with a unique medical philosophy that continues to guide the contemporary turning out of new pharmaceutical formulae. The clinically-proved effective components of these formulae are being extracted by means of modern technology. The TCM industry depends on the patent protection of the results of its R&D no less than does any other industry. However, the patent examination guidelines of many important jurisdictions are hostile to the granting of patents to TCM products and processes. This is partly attributable to the vast differences between the philosophies of TCM and Western medicine, and to the imperfect understanding in many jurisdictions (particularly where Western Medicine is dominant) of the former. To this considerable degree, patent law fails to accommodate the TCM industry. The book examines the compatibilities between patent law and TCM, and argues that patent policy shall be adjusted to better accommodate the characteristics of TCM.

Antonio Bevilacqua Starter Cultures in Food Production

14817.38 руб.
Starter cultures have great significance in the food industry due to their vital role in the manufacture, flavour, and texture development of fermented foods. Once mainly used in the dairy industry, nowadays starter cultures are applied across a variety of food products, including meat, sourdough, vegetables, wine and fish. New data on the potential health benefits of these organisms has led to additional interest in starter bacteria. Starter Cultures in Food Production details the most recent insights into starter cultures. Opening with a brief description of the current selection protocols and industrial production of starter cultures, the book then focuses on the innovative research aspects of starter cultures in food production. Case studies for the selection of new starter cultures for different food products (sourdough and cereal based foods, table olives and vegetables, dairy and meat products, fish and wine) are presented before chapters devoted to the role of lactic acid bacteria in alkaline fermentations and ethnic fermented foods. This book will provide food producers, researchers and students with a tentative answer to the emerging issues of how to use starter cultures and how microorganisms could play a significant role in the complex process of food innovation.

Martin W. Kamau Cross-Cultural Context of School Leadership

3944 руб.
Roles of school heads are changing with time, and consequently requiring a wide range of new responsibilities and the use of effective leadership practices. There are also increased aspects of global diasporic activities and rapid flow of ideas. The school context through which leadership practices are exercised is at the same time influenced by national (country) or societal culture. As a result, styles of leadership practices that researchers have found to generate effective results are being adopted across cultures. This book is a research work that explores the need for situational responsiveness as a means toward effective school leadership for outstanding educational outcomes across cultures, as well as in schools with diverse cultures. The research work particularly questions whether practices of effective school leadership are dependent on local, socio-cultural contexts. To seek evidence to these questions and informed by the literature review, a cross-cultural contextual approach of school leadership is adopted. The study compares the perceptions of effective practices of leadership from leaders of secondary schools across two societal cultures, England and Tanzania.

The Nature of Classical Chinese Medicine: The foundational context to re-unite myriad styles. (Book 2 of 2 - Classical Energy Medicine)This book (in two parts) is an extensive research project into the original essence of Classical (Han-dynasty) Chinese medicine. It is and investigation to look at how medicine might have been understood and connected to from the origin of Taoist Non-duality as expressed in the Tao Te Ching. There are today myriad styles and approaches to energy-medicine all over the world, and even within Chinese medicine itself. This book aims to connect to the unifying principle that is inclusive not exclusive, and as such has the potential to unify all medicine. This book attempts to clarify theoretical positions but with the key realization that Classical books were only pointers to instinctual health and the nature-led healing that occurs when ""self"" and hierarchical egotism drop out.

Born in Taiwan but gone to a junior high school in America, then back to Taiwan for college, and immigrated to America again, the author paints vivid pictures of postwar Taiwan and America in the sixties, and compares the Chinese and American cultures through education systems, the business world, and life in general. The author touches on growing pains; disillusionment; the wear and tear of marriage, parenting, and relationships; challenges and betrayal in the business world; finding herself at fifty-five; and her extraordinary and otherworldly encounters. She reveals complicated Chinese cultural traditions and recounts the Second Sino-Japanese War through her father's recollections. From working at a Buddhist organization and from taking care of her father, she comes to understand birth, aging, sickness, and death. The author considers herself "half a banana"-yellow on the outside but a bit white on the inside. Having lived in the States for forty-three years, she understands both Chinese and American cultures well and shows how the two cultures, especially the fundamental difference between them, have molded her life. Dotted with well-known Chinese sayings and anecdotes, Memoir of Half a Banana offers an interesting and truthful glimpse into the Chinese people and ideology.

Managing in a multicultural setting can be very challenging. Culture strongly influences how people behave and how they understand the behavior of others, and cultures vary in the behaviors they find proper and acceptable. This report--which integrates work done by experts in the fields of anthropology, cross-cultural psychology, and international business management with CCL's perspective on how executives learn from experience--describes the cultural values, often unconsciously held, that underlie work in the U.S. and provides managers in the U.S. with a structured way of learning about the value preferences of people from other cultures. Examples drawn from workplaces around the world aid in applying the framework.

The application of systems biology methods to Traditional Chinese Medicine Emphasizing the harmony of the human body with the environment, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has evolved over thousands of years. It is a systemic theory derived from clinical experience, the philosophy of holism and systematology, and the belief that man is an integral part of nature. Systems Biology for Traditional Chinese Medicine describes how the latest methods in systems biology can be applied to TCM, providing a comprehensive resource for the modernization and advancement of TCM as well as general drug discovery efforts. It is the first comprehensive work to propose a system-to-system research methodology to study the interaction between TCM and the human body and its applications in drug research and development. Using three popular traditional Chinese medicines—Shuanglongfang, Qingkailing, and Liushenwan—as examples, the authors set forth case examples demonstrating how to find material groups, perform efficacy screenings, and conduct safety evaluations of TCM. The book also: Describes the mechanisms of TCM at the molecular and systems levels using chemomics, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and bioinformatics Places modern scientific technologies within the context of TCM, helping drug researchers improve experimental designs and strategies Illustrates how a systems biology approach is compatible with TCM's traditional, holistic therapeutic strategies and treatment modalities Presents topics of current interest, such as integrated global systems biology and the application of chemometrics research to herbal medicines This book not only opens a new pathway for the continued development of TCM, but also for systems biology. In addition, it fosters collaboration and discussion among Eastern and Western scientists by applying systems biology to TCM.
