There is a kind of poetry to Chinese characters. They gives hints and clues about the names we give to the world. They tell a story.
In this conversation with Elisabeth Rochat we explore, like you’d explore bottles of fine wine, some of the meaning and nuance in the characters 意 yi， 通 tong， 命 ming，and 理 li. There are some delicious surprises in this conversation as I’m more conversant with the common meanings of these characters, and Elisabeth’s perspective gives me a whole new appreciation for Chinese language and thought.
Listen in to this discussion of characters, medicine and what it takes to be a human being.
