Basic writings by Zhuangzi ( Book )
22 editions published between 1964 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The basic writings of Chuang Tzu have been savored by Chinese readers for more than two thousand years. And Burton Watson's lucid and beautiful translation has been loved by generations of readers. Chuang Tzu (369?-286? B.C.) was a leading philosopher representing the Taoist strain in Chinese thought. Using parable and anecdote, allegory and paradox, he set forth, in the book that bears his name, the early ideas of what was to become the Taoist school. Central to these is the belief that only by understanding Tao (the Way of Nature) and dwelling in its unity can man achieve true happiness and freedom, in both life and death. Chuang Tzu: Basic Writings includes the seven "inner chapters", which form the heart of the book, three of the "outer chapters", and one of the "miscellaneous chapters". Watson also provides an introduction, which places the philosopher in relation to Chinese history and thought. Witty and imaginative, enriched by brilliant imagery, and making sportive use of both mythological and historical personages (including even Confucius), this timeless classic is sure to appeal to anyone interested in Chinese religion and culture

The Complete works of Zhuangzi by Zhuangzi ( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Only by inhabiting Dao (the Way of Nature) and dwelling in its unity can humankind achieve true happiness and freedom, in both life and death. This is Daoist philosophy's central tenet, espoused by the person?or group of people?known as Zhuangzi (369?-286? B.C.E.) in a text by the same name. To be free, individuals must discard rigid distinctions between good and bad, right and wrong, and follow a course of action not motivated by gain or striving. When one ceases to judge events as good or bad, man-made suffering disappears and natural suffering is embraced as part of life.Zhuangzi elucidates

22 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essential Chuang Tzu by Zhuangzi ( Book )
7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The ancient Chinese text known as CHUANG TZU has been translated into English many times, but never with the freshness, accessibility, and accuracy of this remarkable rendering--the result of a unique collaboration between one of America's premier poet-translators and a leading Chinese scholar. At turns playful and acerbic, the book presents a philosophy of life that is politically radical and deeply spiritual

The book of Chuang Tzu by Zhuangzi ( Book )
8 editions published between 1966 and 2006 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the great founders of Taoism, Chuang Tzu lived in the fourth century BC and is among the most enjoyable and intriguing personalities in the whole of Chinese philosophy. Like the Lieh Tzu and the Tao Te Ching, the Chuang Tzu perceives the Tao - the Way of Nature - not as a term to be explained but as a path to walk. 'The Tao that is clear is not the Tao'; experience is all." "The Book of Chuang Tzu enters into debate with logic and dances around philosophy, making Confucian earnestness - along with the pretensions of emperors, bureaucrats and sages - the frequent butt of its jokes. Radical and subversive, employing wit, humour and shock-tactics, the Chuang Tzu is concerned not with government but with the life and growth of the individual spirit."--BOOK JACKET
