The Daoism of Zhuan-zi

ByPeter M.K. Chan

This ebook is an abridged and systematic reconstitution of what Zhuan-zi (ca.369-286 BC) had actually said regarding the Daoist philosophy of Nature and life. Readers will find that despite its many tall tales and allegories, the Book of Zhuan-zi is actually philosophically sophisticated, rather than mythical and mysterious as usually understood. As Lao-zi before him, Zhuan-zi was also very critical of the moralism of Confucius and Moh-zi, as well as the system of government that was instituted by the ancient Sage-kings. A total of 48 pages with Chinese textual documentation, suitable for students of Chinese philosophy, culture, and language.
