This course focuses on two foundational texts of classical Taoism, the Dao De Jing (Tao Te Ching) and the Zhuangzi (Chuang Tzu). We will examine the two texts closely, and study their various interpretations, both traditional and contemporary. At the end, we will briefly look into the Taoist influence on the West as well as the Western transformation of Taoism.
