Yin Yang Philosophy

Yin yang philosophy is attributed to the Yin Yang School of Chinese philosophers. It has been elaborated and developed in detail by later philosophers who synthesized the philosophies of the 100 schools and incorporated them into their own systems of thought. Yin is the female, receptive, dark, cold, wet and Yang is the male, expressive, bright, hot, dry. In the Yijing the solid line is Yang and the broken line is Yin.
