Book Title:Yuan Dao: Tracing Dao to its Source
Translator(s):Lau, D. C; Ames, Roger T
Publisher Name:Ballantine
Place of Publication:New York, N.Y.
Date of Publication:1998
Annotation:The Yuandao opens the early Han Dynasty text Huainanzi and challenges the emperors’ power in terms of Daoist sensibilities. Ames writes the introduction to the translation and provides the historical and intellectual context of the Han dynasty. The text elaborates the correlation between de (particular details) and dao (the cosmos as a whole). Other topics include: water imagery, the continuity between heaven and humanity, and stilling the heart and mind. The Chinese text is included opposite the translation.
