Abstract

traditional mode of diagnostic methods, is debatable. With the introduction of modern anatomy, the traditional Chinese mode of bodily perceptions and representations was surely denaturalized and challenged, but was never really replaced. The tension between zhongyi (Chinese medicine) and xiyi (Western medicine) and their different modes of seeing and knowing has continued to inform the intellectual discourse of Chinese identity and modernity today. Heinrich draws on intellectual sources from various fields: the history of medicine, the history of science, visual cultural studies, critical theory, and literary studies. He weaves the diverse materials into a fascinating study of China in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In short, The Afterlife of Images opens a new window through which scholars and students can see and debate how Western medicine and science participated in shaping modern Chinese conceptions of the body, the self, and the nation, as well as the Chinese imagination of modernity. Yanhua Zhang Yanhua Zhang is an associate professor of Chinese and anthropology at Clemson University, specializing in studies of contemporary practice of traditional Chinese medicine in China.
