Antiquarianism, Language, and Medical Philology : From Early Modern to Modern Sino-Japanese Medical - image 1 of 1

about this item

This volume rethinks the role of the Sino-Japanese medical classics during the early modern period in light of antiquarianism, languages, and medical philology. Philology in particular allows the authors to address the changing meaning of the same term, which often reflected well-known metaphors in the source language that were transposed to the target language. Each essay touches on the reliability of received medical texts and their modern fate.
