Objectives : Yiyuan(醫原) written by Shi Shoutang(石壽棠) is well known for its focusing on the concept of dryness and dampness in medical theory. This study was done to analyze the formation process of main academic thought in Yiyuan, which included tracing its original sources that had made it possible to construct the main idea in this book. Methods : Firstly, Yiyuan was analyzed in comparison with Yili(醫理) by Yu Guopei(余國佩), which is regarded as the main origin of Yiyuan. And secondly, many diverse medical theories before Yu Guopei and Shi Shoutang was scrutinized to understand the process of the construction of dryness/dampness-centered medical theory. Results & Conclusions : Shi Shoutang took over the main idea of Yu Guopei and expanded it both in theoretical and clinical aspects. Especially, the most remarkable contribution by Shi Shoutang can be said that he used the astronomical theory which had the concept of multi-layered heaven and intensified the theoretical basis of medical theory emphasizing the significance of dryness and dampness. Besides, Shi Shoutang's medical theory was a thing which was also based on many cumulative assertions about dryness and dampness before him. Yu Jiayan's assertion on dryness and dampness could be acknowledged as the most influential one, and it also could be said that the arguments surrounding the property of dryness had formed the main question in the development of medical theory centered on dryness and dampness.
