Abstract

Extract:
The Yin Yang doctrine is very simple but its influence has been extensive. No aspect of Chinese civilization - whether metaphysics, medicine, government, or art - has escaped its imprint. In simple terms, the doctrine teaches that all things and events are products of two elements, forces or principles: yin, which is negative, passive, weak, and destructive, and yang, which is positive, active, strong, and constructive.
