Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written more than two thousand years ago, the Tao Teh Ching, or The Classic of the Way and Its Virtue, has probably had a greater influence on Asian thought than any other single book. It is also one of the true classics of world literature. Traditionally attributed to the near-legendary Old Master, Lao Tzu, the Tao Teh Ching teaches that the qualities of the enlightened sage or ideal ruler are identical with those of the perfected individual. Today, Lao Tzu's words are as useful in mastering the arts of leadership in business and politics as they are in developing a sense of balance and harmony in everyday life. To follow the Tao or Way of all things and realize their true nature is to embody humility, spontaneity, and generosity.

Synopsis:

The original text of the philosophy of Taoism, the classic Chinese guide to spiritual well-being is presented with a new translation.

Synopsis:

A series of insightful comments on life and nature that have been expanding the view of readers for some two thousand years. Translated by John C.H. Wu.
