Tao Te Ching: Six Translations
Bisher € 36,49
BeschreibungThe Tao Te Ching is a spiritual, inspirational work that guides us through life, helping us to live within each moment and find the beauty that is all around each of us. Simple, beautiful, and life changing. The Tao Te Ching is fundamental to the Taoist school of Chinese philosophy (Dàojia), and strongly influenced other schools, such as Legalism and Neo-Confucianism. This ancient book is also central in Chinese Buddhism, which when first introduced into China was largely interpreted through the use of Taoist words and concepts. Many Chinese artists, including poets, painters, calligraphers, and even gardeners, have used the Tao Te Ching as a source of inspiration. Here are six complete translations of this monumental work. Each translation offers its own unique glimpses into the Tao Te Ching, and taken together they offer the most comprehensive view of this sacred text available today. Translations by Dwight Goddard and Henri Borel, Aleister Crowley, Lionel Giles, Walter Gorn-Old, Isabella Mears, and James Legge.
PortraitLaozi (also Lao-Tzu or Lao-Tze, Chinese: ¿¿; pinyin: Laozi, lit. "Old Master") was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer. He is known as the reputed author of the Tao Te Ching and the founder of philosophical Taoism, and as a deity in religious Taoism and traditional Chinese religions. Although a legendary figure, he is usually dated to around the 6th century BC and reckoned a contemporary of Confucius, but some historians contend that he actually lived during the Warring States period of the 5th or 4th century BC. A central figure in Chinese culture, Laozi is claimed by both the emperors of the Tang dynasty and modern people of the Li surname as a founder of their lineage. Laozi's work has been embraced by various anti-authoritarian movements as well as Chinese Legalism.
