Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

Hans-Georg Moeller's intelligent and profound exposition of the Laozi does admirable justice to the unique imagistic texture of this seminal work in world philosophy. The non-humanistic approach opens up new dimensions of meaning, and his text sparkles with insights on almost every page. -- Graham Parkes, University of Hawaii Using a sophisticated comparative approach, Moeller interprets the Daodejing in terms immediately accessible to contemporary readers, bringing it to life as an insightful guide to how we might better respond to issues of our own times--emotions and sexuality, cognition and psychology, ethics and morality, politics and war, life and death, eternity and the moment--all are addressed in Moeller's reading of this ancient Chinese classic in ways that both challenge modern Western humanistic discourse and suggest alternative solutions to age-old problems. -- Richard John Lynn, author of The Classic of Changes: A New Translation of the I Ching As Interpreted By Wang Bi and The Classic of the Way and Virtue: A New Translation of the Tao-te ching of Laozi As Interpreted By Wang Bi
