Thought, History and Critique: An Appreciation of Chinese Medical Canon Relative to Pulse Diagnosis

Thought, History and Critique: An Appreciation of Chinese Medical Canon Relative to Pulse Diagnosis
Special Offer
Volume 4 Issue 3 - Winter 2009

by William R. Morris

Thought, History and Critique provides a critical analysis of Leon Hammer’s article, Tradition and Revision, republished as Discussion on Wang Shu He Pulse Classic, Parts One and Two). In this critique, I adopt three vectors of rhetoric. First, I discuss medical epistemology (how we think and build knowledge) relative to pulse diagnosis. Second is an exploration of canonical lore and traditions relative to medical knowledge. Thirdly I discuss contributions that Hammer has made to the field. He is a teacher with whom I taught and studied between 1993 and 2000. This paper continues a debate and provides a critique of commentary contained in what I will call Tradition and Revision for the rest of this article and where I address the two pulses that the author highlights, the tight pulse and the choppy pulse. The three points of view of knowledge, history and critique are woven throughout this piece.
