Book Title:Heaven and Earth inEarly Han Thought
Author(s):Major, John S
Publisher Name:State University of New York Press
Place of Publication:Albany, N.Y.
Date of Publication:1993
Annotation:Major provides a translation and commentary for chapters three, four, and five of the Huainanzi, a treatise on astronomy and astrology, topography, and ritual/astrological order. Never reaching “classic” status, the Huainanzi was included in the Daoist Patrology (Daozang). It presents a cosmology in terms of yin-yang/five-phase categorical reasoning that explains how the “myriad things” are produced by a process of species differentiation in plants, animals, and minerals.
