Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written more than two thousand years ago, the Tao Teh Ching is probably the most influential work of Asian thought. 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. This lucid translation demonstrates that these teachings are as useful in the arts of leadership as they are in developing a sense of balance and harmony in everyday life. This edition features the Chinese text alongside the English translation.

Synopsis:

One of the Chinese classics most widely known by Westerners, the Tao Teh Ching, is a series of insightful comments on life and nature. This work renders this subtle text into English while retaining the depth of the original.

About the Author

Not much is known about the legendary Lao Tzu, to whom authorship of the Tao Te Ching is popularly attributed. Some scholars believe the author was an elder contemporary of Confucius.
