Based on the opinion that human body is an opening,complicated and huge system,this artical suggests firstly that tra- ditional Chinese Medicine is a theoretical modle depicting the complicated huge system of human body from the viewpoint of macrocosm,and a science with the phenomenal feature.Then it introuduces briefly the theoretical frame and quantita- tive specialities of pansystems methodology (PM.),expounding that PM is an efficient instrument to handle human body —the complicated huge system.Finally,by pansystems noting to the concepts and special names of TCM and pansystems analysizing to Yin and Yang.Five Elements,theory of Zang-Fu,channels and collaterals and the differentiation treat- ment,this article primarily depicts the frame and methods supplied by PM for phenomenal traditional Chinese Medicine. It's the first special artical which discusses and studies this subject systematically since Mr.Qian Xuesheng advocated to study TCM by PM.So it's very meaningful for the study of TCM and human body.
