Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Eleven Western scholars examine this third century B.C.E. text which for the most part addresses the project of personal realization and only derivatively social and political order. The essays offer diverse insights into how to develop an appropriate and productive attitude toward one's life in this world, shedding light on selected passages from the difficult text and providing the needed mediation between available translations of the Zuangzi and the reader's process of understanding.
