Price: $19.99
Examining early Daoist texts, this work finds a thematic and soteriological unity rooted in the mythological symbolism of chaos, fundamental for both philosophy and practice in cosmic, social, and individual life. Interdisciplinary and interpretive in outlook, it challenges prevailing conceptions of the Daode jing and Zhuangzi as philosophical texts without religious significance or affinity with later organized schools while also placing Daoist gourd imagery and creation mythology into a wider comparative context. Controversial and at times playfully provocative, the book with its the unique methodology and intriguing findings is essential for understanding key facets of Daoism both China and the world.
