Historical epistemology and the making of modern Chinese medicine

Edited by Howard Chiang

Published by Manchester University Press

  • This is the first edited volume in English devoted to the history of modern Chinese medicine that showcases the most recent, cutting-edge research of both emerging and established scholars in the field
  • The book makes a bold and powerful intervention by establishing an unprecedented platform on which historians of Chinese medicine and philosophers of science and other science studies scholars could engage in cross-disciplinary reflections, methodologically and historiographically
  • In addition to representing the latest research and moving beyond an 'area studies' paradigm, the collection includes empirically weighted essays that will appeal to an interdisciplinary readership, from history to anthropology to philosophy to politics to cultural studies
