I. Promote the dialectical development and integration of themethodology of modern science and the epistemology of Chinese medicine;
Inherit and develop the treasure trove of Chinese traditionalmedicine, China's ancient medical literature is as vast as a sea, digging andorganizing work,
is both an important and arduous task, which not only requiresthe researcher to have a high level of knowledge in medicine,
ancient Chinese,modern Chinese and other aspects, but also must have a high level of medicalexpertise;
Third, to systematically develop modern technology belonging to TCMitself. For example, the development of new techniques for the identificationof Chinese medicines;
new techniques for the assertion of drug functions; andthe methodology and specific methods for the treatment of functional ordegenerative diseases in Chinese medicine
that have not been included in themedical literature so far, and so on.
All these work should be done by Chinese power, and also needextensive world cooperation. The World Medical Network will join forces withall parties to carry on the development.
