It provides the reader with a look into the visuals that make up key Chinese characters in order to assist the reader in understanding its practical philosophy of Realism.

The remains of Laozi, with Critics By Herbert Allen Giles
Paperback: $19.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Herbert Giles was a major scholar of Chinese texts in the 19th century. His work The remains of Laozi not only provides a critical analysis of the various translations of Laozi which itself is of... More > great interest in drawing an understanding of the text and of the complexity of rendering its meaning through translations. H. Giles also provides a valuable analysis of the history of translations of the text in the 19th century. The remains of Laozi generated a series of responses by other scholars of the time. Those responses are included here to provide an additional layer of understanding of both the complexity of the interpretations of texts and the relationships among some the first major sinologists. This edition includes the work of H. Giles, and the ensuing critics by T. W. Kingsmill, H. Balfour, J. Chalmers, E. H. Parker and J. Legge. It also includes H. Giles’ list of works and a list of over 70 references generated from the text. ISBN-13: 978-1-944175-52-8< Less
The Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching By Paul Gibson
eBook (ePub): $4.99
A VISUAL INTERPRETATION. A book to illustrate the depth, subtlety and richness of the language and philosophy by explaining the visuals provided by key Chinese characters and the pictograms that... More > precede them. Even if a translation appears fairly straightforward, all interpretation is subjective; it must be. Just as every translator interprets, every reader brings his or her abilities to understanding (interpreting) what they read. So it is, will be, and always has been, you will interpret what I have interpreted. Valuing this tendency rather than fighting that which is natural, I intend to offer up ways of seeing the text: Together we will re-view the text through its images rather than hearing only the words as traditionally translated.< Less
Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching: The Way By Tom Noe
eBook (PDF): $1.49
This version of the Tao Te Ching is not a translation, but my personal attempt to come to terms with this classic of religion and literature. Here is the text alone, without history and without... More > comment. Much of what Lao Tzu says is addressed to people of power, but all of us, powerful or not, can learn from him or, rather, he can help us to unlearn what we think we know. I have loved this book for many years, because it has challenged me, as a Christian, to think in new ways about God’s presence in the world as the abiding Holy Spirit. Lao Tzu wasn’t thinking about the Holy Spirit when he produced this masterpiece, but God has always been here in the world for all to see, and I think Lao Tzu saw him. In Christ, God humbled himself to become a human being, and this counter-intuitive way—a profound humility at the center of human life—wouldn’t seem strange at all to Lao Tzu. I can almost hear him now: “Be quiet! Just let them read it!"< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
The Tao Te Ching is one of the world's oldest and most profound pieces of literature. Written around 2,500 years ago by the enigmatic Lao Tzu, its wisdom is timeless and its message just as relevant... More > today. The text, presented here in its entirety with additional commentary on all 81 chapters, is both subtle and expansive. Lao Tzu explores the workings of the cosmos and the natural world, reflecting on the origin and essential nature of mankind. The Tao Te Ching urges us to live in harmony with the natural flow of life. Tao literally means ‘the way’, and throughout the text Lao Tzu draws parallels between the Tao and the effortless flow of nature. As one verse states: "I drift like a wave on the ocean. I blow as aimless as the wind." More than just poetic words; they encapsulate the art of living the Tao. When we align ourselves with the flow of life, we relax, let go and find ourselves living with ease, effortlessness, grace and humility.< Less
