Both were influenced by the philosophies of their time. This explains why they yes many similar or identical terms in their discourse. These include Yin and Yang, Xu(rendered as deficiency here) and Shi(rendered as excesses here), Xie(pathogenic factors) and Zheng(body resistance). The 43 chapters in this book testify to the close relationship between medicine and warfare.
