The historical civilization of China is, with the Indian and European-Semitic, one of the three greatest in the world, yet only relatively recently has any enquiry been begun into its achievements in science and technology. Between the first and fifteenth centuries the Chinese were generally far in advance of Europe and it was not until the scientific revolution of the Renaissance that Europe drew ahead.

It is a vast work, necessarily more suited to the scholar and research worker than the general reader. This paperback version, abridged and re-written by Colin Ronan, makes this extremely important study accessible to a wider public. The present book covers the material treated in volumes I and II of Dr Needham's original work. The reader is introduced to the country of China, its history, geography and language, and an account is given of how scientific knowledge travelled between China and Europe. The major part of the book is then devoted to the history of scientific thought in China itself. Beginning with ancient times, it describes the milieu in which arose the schools of the Confucians, Taoists, Mohists, Logicians and Legalists. We are thus brought on to the fundamental ideas which dominated scientific thinking in the Chinese Middle Ages, to the doctrines of the Two Forces (Yin and Yang) and the Five Elements (wu hsing), to the impact of the sceptical tradition and Buddhist and Neo-Confucian thought.--Publisher description+-+773087670532489221ocn007737781book19790.47Needham, JosephScience in traditional China : a comparative perspectiveHistory+-+24894292157454ocn000354284book19730.56Nakayama, ShigeruChinese science; explorations of an ancient traditionHistory73815ocn000074510book19700.59Needham, JosephClerks and craftsmen in China and the west: lectures and addresses on the history of science and technologyHistory70023ocn000547652book19420.66Needham, JosephBiochemistry and morphogenesis68326ocn000422484book19360.70Needham, JosephOrder and life66621ocn000535867book19600.66Needham, JosephHeavenly clockwork; the great astronomical clocks of medieval ChinaHistory"A reissue with a new foreword and supplement, of a modern classic published in 1960. The invention of the mechanical clock was one of the most important turning points in the history of science and technology. This study revealed six centuries of mechanical clockwork preceding the first mechanical escapement clocks of the West of about AD 1300. Detailed and fully illustrated accounts of elaborate Chinese clocks are accompanied by a discussion of the social context of the Chinese inventions and an assessment of their possible transmission to medieval Europe. For this revised edition, Dr Joseph Needham has contributed a new foreword on recent research and perceptions. In a supplement John H. Combridge details a modern reconstruction of Su Sung's timekeeping device, which together with textual studies modifies our understanding of this important early technology."--Publisher's information+-+816235670553815ocn000705354book19730.70Teich, MikulášChanging perspectives in the history of science: essays in honour of Joseph NeedhamHistory52722ocn001076606book19380.66Needham, JosephBackground to modern science; ten lectures at Cambridge arranged by the History of science committee, 1936History51316ocn002422953book19760.66Needham, JosephMoulds of understanding : a pattern of natural philosophyHistory49729ocn001539405book19130.79Needham, JosephChemical embryologyBibliography44520ocn000054908book19690.70Needham, JosephWithin the four seas: the dialogue of East and WestHistoryContrasts and similarities between China and Europe and the ideas they have of each other35422ocn001148711book19430.76Needham, JosephTime: the refreshing river (essays and addresses, 1932-1942)33818ocn006900543book19800.70Lu, Gwei-DjenCelestial lancets : a history and rationale of acupuncture and moxaHistoryUsing modern knowledge to shed light on ancient techniques, this text examines two of the earliest therapeutic techniques of Chinese medicine: acupuncture and moxibustion. Acupuncture is the implantation of very thin needles into subcutaneous connective tissue and muscle at a great number of different points on the body's surface; moxibustion is the burning of Artemisia tinder (moxa) either directly on the skin or just above it. For 2500 years the Chinese have used both techniques to relieve pain and to heal a wide variety of illnesses and malfunctions.

This married Englishman, a freethinking intellectual, while working at Cambridge University in 1937, fell in love with a visiting Chinese student, with whom he began a lifelong affair. He became fascinated with China, and embarked on a series of extraordinary expeditions to the farthest frontiers of this ancient empire. He searched everywhere for evidence to bolster his conviction that the Chinese were responsible for hundreds of mankind's most familiar innovations--including printing, the compass, explosives, suspension bridges, even toilet paper--often centuries before the rest of the world. His dangerous journeys took him across war-torn China to far-flung outposts, consolidating his deep admiration for the Chinese people. After the war, Needham began writing what became a seventeen-volume encyclopedia, Science and Civilisation in China.--From publisher description+-+740933515582815ocn226386449rcrd20080.13Winchester, SimonThe man who loved China Joseph Needham and the making of a masterpieceHistoryBiographySimon Winchester profiles the life and work of Joseph Needham, a man who, in the mid-20th century, dedicated his life to studying the history of Chinese science.
