Who Invented Bagang?

Charles Buck

Bagang, often translated as “eight principles”, is arguably the dominant style of pattern differentiation in contemporary Chinese medicine. In this article the author explores the origins and development of this simple yet profound clinical framework, and concludes that bagang is not, in fact, a 20th century invention by the Chinese communists, but rather has been an integral part of Chinese medicine since its very origins in Han and pre-Han times.
