Based on the successful discovery of artemisinin by Chinese female scientist Tu Youyou who won the Noble Prize in physiology or medicine and who is inspired by Ge Hong's Zhouhou Beiji Fang, this article introduces Ge Hong's natural philosophy from its ontology, epistemology and dialectics by starting with the family background, life story, historical background and theoretical background of the formation of Ge Hong's philosophical thought, and then carries on the comprehensive appraisal to its natural philosophy thought and points out its scientific contribution as well as the historical limitation.
