Abstract

疾病是客观事实,中西医学的不同疾病观,是因为对疾病事实在认识上有局限或偏离。当认识逼近真实时,分歧就会缩小。因为研究的是同一事实,故中西医学有沟通条件。中医学学科内部的长期自我更新不足,客观上存在与外部其他学科交流的要求,与西医学的交流是其重要途径之一。中医学需抉择的关键问题不是要不要与西医学沟通,而是如何沟通。

Being a matter of fact, disease itself is not diversified in Chinese and Western medicine, the only discrepancy between them lies on the different understandings. The implacable different cognitions of the two medicines on an identical fact just demonstrate some deviations from the truth. Since the thing researched is the same one, the diverge must be lessened when the cognition is pushing near the truth, hereby, the recognition for communicating is get ready. Besides, communication with other medicines is the objective requirement for Chinese medicine itself due to the insufficient auto-renewing in a long time, and interchanging with Western medicine is one of the very important ways beyond question. So, the problem needed to be taken into consideration is how to make it actual, but not whether it is the requisite.
