I find Yip's approach to be of immediate practical value. It represents a fundamental breakthrough in crosscultural awareness, bringing the living reality of chinese culture - as experienced by the chinese person - to life for the western mind. This attempt reaches past the analytic perspective and borders on a cultural anthropology of mind. This is of keen value to psychologists, who began a primitive study of this topic in the late 1880's under the direction of Wundt in Germany. It went no further than 1900. Besdies the importance for linguists, those inspired by ancient texts, translators who appreciate the subtle value of perception, students of comparative religion and traditional chinese medicine, the breakthough in the realm of poetry is attempted with a boldness that affirms the host culture. Wow! This, to me, places the text in the forefront of a new begining.
