Michigan Monographs in Chinese Studies #65: Classifying the Zbuangzi Chaptersby Liu Xiaogan
Synopses & Reviews
The relationships, both historical and philosophical, among the Zhuangzi's Inner, Outer, and Miscellaneous chapters are the subject of ancient and enduring controversy. Liu marshals linguistic, intertextual, intratextual, and historical evidence to establish an objectively demonstrable chronology and determine the philosophical affiliations among the various chapters. This major advance in Zhuangzi scholarship furnishes indispensable data for all students of the great Daoist text. In a lengthy afterword, Liu compares his conclusions with those of A. C. Graham and addresses the relationship between the Zhuangzi and the Laozi.
Liu Xiaogan is Professor of Philosophy at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
