Hsu, Elisabeth. The Transmission of Chinese Medicine. Cambridge University Press, December 1999.
This text offers a valuable contribution to the education of students of Chinese medicine in epistemic cognition as it relates to the relationship between Chinese words and Chinese ideas, helping to bridge the gap between accurate understanding of Chinese medical theory and the limited facility in which it is relayed to the population of students learning outside the context of Chinese language and culture. This account relays how knowledge is shaped by the context of instruction. Proper Chinese medical education and practice is grounded in accurate theory and text.
