Nishida and Western philosophy by Robert Wilkinson( )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 1,583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nishida Kitaro (1870-1945) is the most important Japanese philosopher of the last century. His constant aim in philosophy was to try to articulate Zen in terms drawn from Western philosophical sources, yet in the end, he found that he could not do so, and his thought illustrates a conceptual incommensurability at the deepest level between the main line of the Western tradition and one of the main lines in Eastern thought. This book is a work of comparative philosophy, attention is given to the consequences of Nishida's metaphysics in the areas of ethics, aesthetics, the philosophy of religion

Tao te ching by Laozi( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 42 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
