Details

Daoism is one of the great philosophical and religious traditions that grew and flowered in China. Unlike the great Western religions, Daoism has no one God or even a founding prophet. One of its central beliefs is that each person must follow his or her own path to the Dao, or "Way of Life." By being so universal and yet so personal, Daoism has exerted a significant influence on the spiritual life of many cultures both in Asia and throughout the world. Daoism, Third Edition traces the progress of Daoist thought, from the great Daodejing, or "The Book of the Way and Its Power" by Laozi, to the contemporary Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra. This revised edition also examines the restoration of Daoism under China's religious freedom clause, the slow rebirth of Daoist monasticism, renewed interest in Daoism in China and abroad, and the impact of tourism on the monastic tradition.

Coverage includes:
  • Meditation and the concept of wuwei
  • Daoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism
  • The growth and spread of religious Daoism
  • Art and literature within Daoism
  • Political turbulence in the 20th century.
