This issue of the Review of Culture opens with a dossier of five articles on the theory, principle and philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a set of works from the Spring Conferences 2022 in partnership with the Macau Scientific and Cultural Centre in Lisbon.

The dossier brings together studies that link Sinology and Traditional Chinese Medicine, its therapeutic and philosophical dimensions, the integration of diagnosis and regulations of Traditional Chinese Medicine by the World Health Organization, and the scientific presentation and beneficial therapeutic effects of three species of Ginseng. The dossier culminates with an innovative co-operation programme between China and Portugal called Scimat, which outlines rapprochement between East and West in the scientific and philosophical fields.

In the next section on Macao Studies, The Bewitching Braid and The Monkey King by Henrique de Senna Fernandes and Timothy Mo, respectively, are the subject of literary criticism, and closing this number, in the historiographical field, is a detailed study of the foundation of the Canton System in the 17th century and the regulation of trade in the region.
