Price: $15.00
Cosmos and Community is the first English study of Daoist religious ethics. Based on original translations of primary sources, it presents a thorough comparative analysis of various kinds of Daoist rules, divided into four major kinds: prohibitions, admonitions, injunctions (concrete behavioral guidelines), and affirmations (positive personal prayers). They all serve to place the practitioner firmly into the overarching goodness of Dao. The book also presents extensive translations of original sources, ranging from the 3rd to 17th centuries. Further enhanced by a separate volume, Supplement to Cosmos and Community, the work is essential reading for anyone interested in Daoism, comparative ethics, or Chinese history.
