In the last years an increasing interest in TCM has emerged in the Western world. This interest is both practical and theoretical. This book is written for all those with a practical interest in TCM; it gathers texts for those interested in TCM in a philosophical way, but is not loaded with too detailed philosophical information. This book is suitable for practitioners of TCM and for all those who are interested in the structure of TCM and Western medicine.
