Responsabilità professionale in agopuntura

Maurizio Vaccaro, Paolo Arbarello
e altri

editore: Minerva Medica

pagine: 52

I principi fondamentali ai quali il medico deve ispirare costantemente l'esercizio della propria professione sono ben definiti da codificate norme giuridiche e deontologiche, dove il nucleo degli aspetti principali da rispettare sono identificati testualmente nella perizia, nella prudenza, nella diligenza. Anche al medico agopuntore si applicano giustamente i fondamenti della responsabilità professionale relativamente all'imperizia, all'imprudenza, alla negligenza. Risulta quindi importante affrontare il problema dell'agopuntura iniziando a descriverne i criteri, le modalità di effettuazione, le tecniche, gli scopi, gli effetti, le eventuali controindicazioni, i rischi, le eventuali conseguenze non desiderate sotto l'aspetto della responsabilità professionale. Gli autori si augurano che questa pubblicazione sull'argomento possa aprire uno specifico dibattito su un tema in cui è necessario che al più presto entri in vigore una normativa ad hoc che affronti per tempo una situazione che si sta espandendo velocemente senza regole.

Lo spirito della cultura cinese

Claude Larre

editore: Jaca Book

pagine: 249

Il volume prosegue la grande opera di Claude Larre iniziata con "Alle radici della civiltà cinese". I due testi compongono l'opera Les Chinois (I Cinesi), il lavoro di sintesi culturale più importante dell'eminente sinologo. Il presente volume propone un approfondimento dello spirito della cultura cinese tradizionale. Sono qui anzitutto esaminate le più importanti correnti di pensiero della Cina antica, le cosiddette Cento scuole, i Maestri del pensiero che hanno dato le basi teoriche allo sviluppo della grande civiltà dell'Impero del Centro. Larre ci mostra come Confucianesimo, Taoismo e Buddismo per i Cinesi, salvo stagioni e situazioni particolari, non sono stati delle religioni contrapposte, ma delle "vie" che hanno spesso trovato un'armonizzazione. Segue un capitolo sulla concezione dell'uomo, cioè sull'antropologia dei cinesi a partire da alcuni brani dei testi antichi che rivelano l'ardore e l'amore della loro straripante umanità. Nelle "Arti della vita" viene descritta la ricerca della vita piacevole, si trovano riuniti i temi dell'arte di vivere: benessere, piacere del camminare, della tavola, della compagnia femminile, della musica e della poesia, come pure delle discussioni filosofiche fra amici. Infine, un interessante spaccato sulla Medicina Tradizionale Cinese, oggi studiata e promossa in tutto il mondo che offre le chiavi di una disciplina che mette l'accento sull'armonia originaria e indispensabile tra l'uomo e l'universo.

"Kampo: A Clinical Guide to Theory and Practice" provides an excellent overview of Kampo in modern society and goes on to present an historical perspective from practitioners in Japan and the west. The translation opens with Dr Otsuka's personal reflections on how to study Kampo, the legal and practical status of Kampo practitioners when he began practice and includes clinical anecdotes. The book summarizes diagnostic theory and methodology then leads onto a section including 80 principal formulas followed by a therapeutic section organized according to allopathic definitions of disease. It follows a systems approach in internal medicine beginning with respiratory and cardiovascular disorders, moving through a comprehensive analysis of all the body systems. This section forms the heart of the text: it outlines essential clinical information on how differential diagnosis and formula selection is achieved with the Kampo tradition. A comprehensive index of 120 major herbal formulas and 180 individual herbal ingredients is compiled from the author's linage and experience. The translators have included an original piece of work in the form of a comprehensive Glossary of terms designed to clarify concepts of health and disease unique to Kampo and Japanese culture. From the Foreword by Dan Bensky: 'Readers who already have some basic knowledge of Kampo will gain a deeper understanding of the roots of modern Kampo, as well as information about diagnosis and treatment that come direct from the source.. it is of great interest to have this example of an important book from mid-twentieth century Japan'.
