Tao te ching by Laozi( Book )

172 editions published between 1939 and 2018 in 14 languages and held by 6,831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Lao Tzu is the principal classic in the thought of Taoism. Lao Tzu (whose name means 'Old Master') was an older contemporary of Confucius. Lao Tzu was a Chinese philosopher and founder of the Taoist religion in China. He worked as a librarian at the court of Chou. When the kingdom showed signs of decay, Lao Tzu left and was never heard of again. While traditionally ascribed to Lao Tzu, this work is more probably an anthology of wise sayings compiled in about the fourth century BC. As a treatise both on personal conduct and on government, it is moral rather than mystical in tone, and advances a philosophy of meekness as the surest path to survival

Tao Te Ching, Or, The Tao and Its Characteristics by Laozi( )

7 editions published between 1891 and 2017 in English and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Tao Te Ching is a Chinese classic text. According to tradition, it was written around 6th century BC by the Taoist sage Laozi (or Lao Tzu, "Old Master"), a record-keeper at the Zhou Dynasty court, by whose name the text is known in China. The text's true authorship and date of composition or compilation are still debated. The Tao Te Ching is fundamental to the Taoist school of Chinese philosophy and strongly influenced other schools, such as Legalism and Neo-Confucianism. This ancient book is also central in Chinese religion, not only for Taoism but Chinese Buddhism, which when f
Tao teh ching by Laozi( Book )

204 editions published between 1894 and 2018 in 17 languages and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For nearly two generations, this bestselling translation of the 'Tao Te Ching' has been the standard for those seeking access to the wisdom of Taoist thought. Now Jane English and her long-time editor, Toinette Lippe, have refreshed and revised the translation, so that it more faithfully reflects the Classical Chinese in which it was first written, while taking into account changes in our own language and eliminating any lingering infelicities. This beautiful oversized edition features over a hundred new photographs by Jane English that help express the vast spirit of the Tao. Also included is an introduction by the well-known writer and scholar of philosophy and comparative religion, Jacob Needleman. Lao Tsu’s philosophy is simple: Accept what is in front of you without wanting the situation to be other than it is. Study the natural order of things and work with it rather than against it, for to try to change what is only sets up resistance. Nature provides everything without requiring payment or thanks. It does so without discrimination. So let us present the same face to everyone and treat them all as equals, however they may behave. If we watch carefully, we will see that work proceeds more quickly and easily if we stop "trying," if we stop putting in so much extra effort, if we stop looking for results. In the clarity of a still and open mind, truth will be reflected. Te-- which may be translated as "virtue" or "strength"-- lies always in Tao meaning "the way" or "natural law." In other words: Simply be."--Amazon.com

The way and its power; a study of the Tao tê ching and its place in Chinese thought by Arthur Waley( Book )

6 editions published between 1934 and 1997 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Waley s brilliant and definitive translation of one of the foremost of all mystical books, Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, has become a modern classic in its own right. Unlike previous translations, it is founded not on the medieval commentaries but on a close study of all the early Chinese literature, and it provides a singular example of authoritative scholarship skillfully blended with brilliant, precise writing. In his introduction, Dr. Waley gives an extensive scholarly account of Chinese thought down to the end of the third century B.C. Here, the author presents a full picture of Chinese prehistory, early philosophy, and literature, showing the original, lofty conception of Taoism before the gradual corruption through the course of centuries, tracing this conflict of philosophies and its background of politics."

In his extensive commentary, Professor Henricks reevaluates traditional interpretations. From the Trade Paperback edition

15 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This exceptional translation of the Tao Te Ching by Chang Chung-yuan reveals the true wisdom and beauty of this ancient Chinese text. Traditionally attributed to Taoist philosopher Lao Tzu, the Tao Te Ching remains relevant worldwide today, more than two thousand years after it was written. This translation of the Taoist text and the accompanying commentaries delve into the real meaning of the Tao Te Ching and make this Chinese classic accessible, without any reduction of the complex thought within its pages. Chang Chung-yuan is unique in his approach and his introduction and commentaries place the Taoist text in the context of Western metaphysics, making reference to Heidegger, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Jung, Plato, Kant and Nietzsche, and capturing when and how Taoism came to the West. Tao: A New Way of Thinking will be fascinating to anyone with an interest in Taoism and will be particularly appealing to those interested in comparative philosophy

Renowned translator William Scott Wilson has rendered Lao Tzu's classic in the most authentic way possible, using both the ancient text and the even older Great Seal script used during Lao Tzu's time. The result is a new and nuanced translation, accompanied by Chinese ink paintings and ancillary material. Wilson includes an introduction that tells the story of Lao Tzu, the "old man" and the "keeper of the archives," and notes to illuminate the text. He also includes two short essays--one explains the relationship between Taoism and Zen, and the other explores the roots that link the spiritual aspects of the Tao with the practice of Chinese and Japanese martial arts. Wilson's version of this ancient classic is wonderfully fresh and readable
The Tao te ching of Lao Tzu : a new translation by Laozi( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Tao te Ching of Lao Tzu is one of the most widely read and deeply cherished books in the world, a work many consider the wisest book ever written. In his introduction, translator Brian Browne Walker says, "It is less a book than a living, breathing angel". In his new translation, Walker stays close to the direct literal accuracy of the Chinese characters while producing a modern, exceptionally clear version that has the ring and voice of Lao Tzu, a man who may or may not have been a single individual. "I have come to think of Lao Tzu less as a man who once lived", Walker writes, "and more as a song that plays, eternal and abiding."
