What is (Chinese) medicine?

This question was investigated on June 12, 2014, by Prof. Dr. U. Paul Unschuld, Director of the Horst-Görtz-Foundation for the Theory, History and Ethics of Chinese Life Sciences at the Berliner Charité. The topic is a complex one, given the differences between medicine as documented in the past by the relatively few scholars and as actually practised by the population at large, about which almost nothing is known. A mere fraction of the old medical books have been translated, and many "treasures" may still remain hidden.
