The article describes the Daoist, Confusian, Buddhist and other Chinese philosophies integrated to Western nursing theories. A comparative analysis is presented between the classical Chinese philosophy and the unitary-transformative nursing perspective in relation to the three concepts commonly addressed with the nursing literature. These three themes are: the holistic nature of the environment, the nature of the self, and the relationship that exist between humans and the environment. The commonalities and the differences of the two philosophical areas in nursing are also discussed.
