dc.description.abstract This article seeks to suggest in detail how Chinese medical practices became acceptable to the nineteenth-century nativist Hirata Atsutane, whose extreme anti-Chinese bias made such acceptance highly problematic. A related goal is to introduce the little-known medical contributions of Atsutane, who has formerly been seen only as a nationalist pedagogue. This short examination of his writings on medicine attempts to illuminate nineteenth-century opinions concerning what we today would identify as faith healing and traditional Chinese herbal medical practices. en
