The essential Chuang Tzu by Zhuangzi( Book )
8 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 459 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 )
12 editions published between 1966 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 416 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

Zhuangzi : basic writings by Zhuangzi( Book )
6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 248 libraries worldwide
Only by understanding Dao (the Way of Nature) and dwelling in its unity can humankind achieve true happiness and freedom, in both life and death. This is the central tenet of the philosophy espoused by Zhuangzi (369?-286?BC) in the book that bears his name. A leading philosopher of the Daoist strain, Zhuangzi used parable and anecdote, allegory and paradox, to set forth the early ideas of what was to become the Daoist school. Witty and imaginative, enriched by brilliant imagery, and making sportive use of both mythological and historical personages (including even Confucius), this is a timeless classic
The inner chapters by Zhuangzi( Book )
20 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 197 libraries worldwide
Revered for millennia in the Chinese spiritual tradition, 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 fourth century B.C.E. Witty and engaging, spiced with the lyricism of poetry, Chuang Tzu's Taoist insights are timely and eternal, profoundly concerned with spiritual ecology. Indeed, the Tao of Chuang Tzu was a wholesale rejection of a human-centered approach. Zen traces its sources back to these Taoist roots — roots at least as deep as those provided by Buddhism. But this is an ancient text that yields a surprisingly modern effect. In bold and startling prose, David Hinton's translation captures the "zany texture and philosophical abandon" of the original. The Inner Chapters' fantastical passages — in which even birds and trees teach us what they know — offer up a wild menagerie of characters, freewheeling play with language, and surreal humor. And interwoven with Chuang Tzu's sharp instruction on the Tao are short-short stories that are often rough and ribald, rich with satire and paradox. On their deepest level, the Inner Chapters are a meditation on the mysteries of knowledge itself. "Chuang Tzu's propositions," the translator's introduction reminds us, "seem to be in constant transformation, for he deploys words and concepts only to free us of words and concepts." Hinton's vital new translation makes this ancient text from the golden age of Chinese philosophy come alive for contemporary readers

The complete works of Zhuangzi by Zhuangzi( Book )
7 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in English and held by 67 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
