Overview

A comparative study of Zhuangzi, a Taoist thinker, and Kierkegaard, a Protestant Christian thinker, this work develops and analyzes 'anti-rationalism' as a distinct religious category. Known, in part, for their rejections of rationalist approaches to religious truth and ethics, Zhuangzi and Kierkegaard both seek alternative sources of belief, without sacrificing an underlying commitment to philosophical realism. While acknowledging the very significant differences in their religious visions, the authors argue that Zhuangzi's and Kierkegaard's approaches are nonetheless substantially similar, and point to the need for a new analytical category.
