Tao te ching by Laozi( Book )

619 editions published between 1842 and 2019 in 19 languages and held by 7,349 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

The classic of the way and virtue : a new translation of the Tao-te ching of Laozi as interpreted by Wang Bi by Laozi( Book )

15 editions published between 1977 and 2004 in English and held by 1,086 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard John Lynn presents here a translation of the Tao-te ching written especially for English-language readers." "Like his I Ching, this volume includes the interpretive commentary of the third-century scholar Wang Bi (226-249), who wrote the first and most sophisticated commentary on the Tao-te ching. Lynn's critical introduction explores the centrality of Wang's commentaries in Chinese thought, his major contributions to Chinese philosophy, his short but brilliant life, and the era in which he lived, as well as the position of the Tao-te ching in East Asian traditions." "Consisting of eighty-one short aphoristic sections, the Tao-te ching presents a complete view of how the sage rules in accordance with the spontaneous ways of the natural world. Although the work was originally designed to provide advice to the ruler, its teachings are considered tools for living and self-cultivation, applicable to anyone. Wang Bi's commentaries, following each statement, allow modern Western readers to encounter the Tao-te ching in the way that Chinese readers have for more than seventeen centuries - as a religious text and a philosophy of life."--Jacket
Tao Te Ching : Or the Tao and its Characteristics by Laozi( )

6 editions published between 1891 and 2017 in English and held by 1,082 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

"In his translation, Henricks focuses attention on lines in each of the chapters that vary from readings in other editions. In addition, he shows how the sequence of chapters in this form of the text is totally unrelated to the sequence readers commonly see in the "standard" form of the text (i.e., in other translations)."--Jacket

Tao te ching : a book about the way and the power of the way by Laozi( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a completely fresh and poetic version of the twenty-five-hundred-year-old Chinese spiritual classic, by one of America's most thought-provoking writers. Moved by a lifelong love for the Tao Te Ching, the novelist and poet Ursula K. Le Guin has been working on this version of the text since the 1950s. Scholar J.P. Seaton has added expert linguistic guidance to her work, bringing to it an equally passionate commitment to scholarly accuracy. Together they have created a translation that is unlike any seen before. Le Guin's version captures all the brilliance of Lao Tzu's poetry while conveying with immediacy and clarity the astonishing depth of his spiritual insights. It also corrects many of the distorted views of Lao Tzu's philosophy, freeing it from gender-bias and revealing its universal relevance. This new version is sure to be welcomed by the many readers of the Tao Te Ching, as well as those coming to the text for the first time
Tao, a new way of thinking : a translation of the Tao te ching, with an introduction and commentaries by Laozi( Book )

14 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and held by 475 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

Tao te ching (Daodejing) : the tao and the power by Laozi( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most translated book in the world after the Bible, the Tao Te Ching, or "Book of the Way," is a guide to cultivating a life of peace, serenity, and compassion. Through aphorisms and parable, it leads readers toward the Tao, or the "Way": harmony with the life force of the universe. Traditionally attributed to Lao Tzu, a Chinese philosopher who was a contemporary of Confucius, it is the essential text of Taoism, one of the three great religions of ancient China. As one of the world's great works of wisdom literature, it still has much to teach us today, offering a practical model based on modesty and self-restraint for living a balanced existence and for opening your mind, freeing your thoughts, and attaining enlightenment and self-awareness. With its emphasis on calm, simplicity, purity, and non-action, it provides a time-tested refuge from the busyness of modern life. This new translation seeks to understand the Tao Te Ching as a guide to everyday living and encourages a slow, meditative reading experience. The Tao Te Ching's eighty-one brief chapters are accompanied by illuminating commentary, interpretation, poems, and testimonials by the likes of Margaret Mead, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. Specially commissioned calligraphy for more than two hundred Chinese characters illustrates the book's essential themes"--
Tao te ching : an all-new translation by Laozi( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
