Chapter 74 of the Great Treatise on the Essence of the Utmost Truth zhizhen yaodalun of the Inner Classic of the Yellow Emperor huangdi neijing records the most encompassing and original rules in Chinese medicine pathology. The Nineteen Lines on Pathology are considered to be the most authoritative instructions on classical etio-pathology and the only discourse where a differentiation method based on the five phase energetics is presented. Because they cannot be researched from merely the more modern Qing dynasty organ differentiation standpoint we are most accustomed to, the instructions are difficult to understand. This course presents the only path to full understanding of the lines – an evaluation from all possible angles in classical Chinese medicine thinking, including cross-referencing other classics like the Classic of Difficulties nan jing and later commentaries by masters like Zhang Jingyue.
