Remembering the Song: Cultural and Scientific Innovations and the Advancement of Classical Chinese Medicine
8 May, 2018
We take a visit to the Song Dynasty in China. Donna Carey and Ellen Franklin take us on a tour 1000 years into the past, to the golden age of Chinese Medicine. They immerse us in the cultural setting that encouraged our medicine to flourish – science, the arts, technology, the economy, the military, philosophy, cultural values, international relations, and, of course, medicine – so that we can understand why it flourished then, and they compare what happened during the Song to what is happening in China today.
