Abstract: An overview of how the Chinese concept of change evolved differently from Greek thought, leading to different approaches to science. Chinese conceptualization of ideas was both constrained in precision and open to ambiguity, due to imprecision of the Chinese language relative to the English and Romanized languages. However, as Western science in biology, medicine and quantum physics explored realms of complexity and uncertainty, the two philosophical traditions began to converge. We use a modern interpretation of the Book of Change to illustrate these areas of difference and convergence.
