Basic writings by Zhuangzi( Book )
25 editions published between 1964 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 978 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 inner chapters by Zhuangzi( Book )
24 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 489 libraries worldwide
The Chuang Tzu stands alongside the Tao Te Ching as a founding classic of Taoism. The Inner Chapters are the only sustained section of this text widely believed to be the work of Chuang Tzu himself, dating to the 4th century BC. They are full of fantastic tales - of a gigantic fish that becomes a bird; a cook who never sharpens his blade though he butchers numberless oxen; a magical being who lives in the mountains, lives off air and dew and rides on cloud carts pulled by dragons; a student of Confucius who attains the great learning of 'sitting and forgetting'; and much more. Interspersed with these stories is advice and guidance on every aspect of life - including death. While Lao Tzu's writings are short, pithy statements, Chuang Tzu's are voluminous and full of puns, riddles and outright jokes. He challenges the status quo at all times and champions our right to live our own lives in a simple, straightforward fashion, uncorrupted by society's strictures or by desperate attempts at fame and fortune. This is a clear-cut primer for peace of mind and a balanced lifestyle. The stunning photographs, many of which are Solala Towler's own, capture the atmosphere of the peacefulness and tranquillity of ancient China as perceived in Zen, and in contemplation of their beauty and the insightful and inspirational prose, the reader will absorb the eternal message of Zen

The book of Chuang Tzu by Zhuangzi( Book )
9 editions published between 1966 and 2006 in English and held by 406 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."--Jacket
