Book Title:Wandering at Ease in the Zhuangzi
Editor(s):Ames, Roger T
Publisher Name:State University of New York Press
Place of Publication:Albany, N.Y.
Date of Publication:1989
Annotation:Stating the Daodejing is more concerned with social and political order, Ames demonstrates how this fourth century BCE text rooted in the tradition of philosophical Daoism is intended for purposes of personal realization. While the “outer chapters” are thought to be additions by the lineage, the “inner chapters” are attributed to Master Zhuang himself. He includes sections on the cosmological significance of Daoist metaphors like rivers, fish, water, humor, friendship, and decision-making, and makes comparisons of Daoist, Western, Confucian, and Buddhist senses of “self.”
