Live to learn and learn to senility. Qin Bowei Qin Bowei [1901 to 1970]. Qin Bowei was one of the most respected physicians of twentieth-century China. He was an outspoken advocate for Chinese traditional medicine when the Chinese government resolved to abolish it in 1929; a Minister of Health for the People’s Republic; a teacher of traditional medicine as it is taught in China today. He was one of China’s post-revolutionary heroes, a man whose contributions to medicine were a social accomplishment of lasting force. This anthology is a uniquely valuable collection of Qin Bowei’s clinical essays. The topics covered include liver disorders and measures for treating fever, cough and swelling. These are presented at a level of detail rarely found in a Western language. His discussions of Ming Men and supplementation reveal the logic of T.C.M. with equal depth. Each of his theses is complete with clinical examples, cases, and formulas. The Qin Bowei Anthology makes the clinical experience, observations, and logic of one of modern China’s most often-studied clinicians available to Western readers.
