Most widely held works by Laozi
Tao te ching by Zhu Yang( Book )

8 editions published between 1973 and 2006 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Part poetry, part paradox, always stirring and profound, Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching has been inspiring readers since it was written over two thousand years ago. This masterpiece is also one of the most frequently translated books in all of history, in part because the multiple meanings of the Chinese characters make it impossible to translate into a Western language in a strictly literal way. For this reason, many translations are either too loosely interpretive or are too overloaded with notes, thereby losing the clarity of the terse poetry found in the original Chinese. The extraordinary strength of Sam Hamill's translation is that it has captured the poetry of Lao Tzu's original without sacrificing the resonance of the text's many meanings and possible interpretations. The result is a beautiful and deeply meditative rendering, one that is a delight to read over and over again. Accompanying Sam Hamill's translation are seventeen Chinese characters brushed by one of the great masters of calligraphy, Kazuaki Tanahashi. Hamill provides a comment for each character, giving the reader a fuller sense of the richness of the original text and insight into the process of translation itself."--Publisher's website

Yang Chu, known alternately as "the philosopher of pleasure and contentment," has a deep concern with enjoying life to the fullest and argues that true egoism does not center on seeking fame or glory, but rather the development of the individual. By allowing the inner voice and senses to grow, Yang Chu explains, the ability to take pleasure in the simple aspects of life grows as well

Dao de jing : the book of the way by Moss Roberts( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dao De Jing is one of the richest, most suggestive, and most popular works of philosophy and literature. Composed in China between the late sixth and the late fourth centuries b.c., its enigmatic verses have inspired artists, philosophers, poets, religious thinkers, and general readers down to our own times. This new translation, both revelatory and authentic, captures much of the beauty and nuance of the original work. In an extensive and accessible commentary to his translation, Moss Roberts reveals new depths of Dao De Jing. This edition is distinguished by the literary quality of the translation, its new renderings for a number of the stanzas, and by Roberts's knowledgeable contextualizations. Utilizing recently discovered manuscripts and Chinese scholarship based on them, he is able to shed new light on the work's historical and philosophical contexts. This translation shows that Dao De Jing is far more than a work of personal inspiration; it is also a work of universal scope that makes penetrating comments on politics, statecraft, cosmology, aesthetics, and ethics. Roberts brings these themes to our attention, shows how they are integrated into the work as a whole, and demonstrates the relevance of these topics for our own times."--Publisher description

This new translation of the Chinese classic and foundation text of Daoism integrates the manuscript discoveries of the last 30 years, introducing a fundamentally different view of the nature of the Dao. Michael Puett, the Walter C. Klein Professor of Chinese History and Chair of the Committee on the Study of Religion at Harvard University, calls this translation "an excellent translation of one of the most important texts from the Chinese philosophical tradition," and goes on to state: "Building upon the crucial body of scholarship that has developed in China over the past several decades, Yang Peng succeeds in providing a translation that is both precise and readable. A wonderful achievement!"--Publisher
Tao-tê-king Das heilige Buch vom Weg u. von d. Tugend by Zhu Yang( Book )

17 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in German and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Tao-Tê-King von Lao-tse, das Buch vom rechten Sinn und Weg, dürfte nach der Bibel das am weitesten verbreitete und meistübersetzte Buch sein. Die Alternativbewegung könnte bei Lao-tse manche Anregung oder Bestätigung finden. Er ist geradezu der Verkünder der Maxime small is beautiful und eines einfachen Lebens. Die Hauptlehre: Lebe nicht nach aussen, sondern nach innen. Alle Spekulationen abstrakten Denkens, alle Spiele der Dichtung, alles Leid über die Hinfälligkeit unseres Daseins, aller Trost und aller Humor darüber sind darin schon zum Ausdruck gekommen. Es ist eines der grossen Menschheitsbücher
