"Publication of an English translation of "Fundamentals of Chinese Medicine" is an important step toward assuring that a process of serious questioning will take place and that the medical dialogue between East and West will have lasting importance and conscious direction. Only accurate information will allow the beginnings of an American or European version of Oriental medicine. A new variant of Oriental medicine must be based on careful and thoughtful study of primary sources, on reflection, and on information. Otherwise, it will be a mutant based on fantasy. Every bit of information received from the Orient must be considered a precious artifact requiring our intense examination.

This brief discourse is an introduction to the historical development of medicine in China, whose influence on Korea, Japan and Southeast Asia was profound and even reached far west into the Islamic world. The authors wish to make the interested reader aware of China's rich contribution to the world growth of the medical sciences. Too often the view has been taken that the history of medicine began with the discoveries of the Greeks and those ancient nations from whom they learnt. The authors want to redress this view and acquaint readers with a glimpse of the concepts and history of Chinese medicine and hope that they will feel encouraged to delve deeper.
