    Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi) Table of Contents Hui Shih's Teaching. Chuang Tzu: Skeptical Perspectivalism. Intuitionism. Skepticism v. Dogmatic Monism. Interpretive Issues. Practical Implications. Chuang Tzu (Chuang Chou, ca, BC), along with Lao Tzu, is a defining figure in Chinese Taoism.   Revered for millennia in the Chinese spiritual tradition, Chuang Tzu stands alongside the Tao Te Ching as a founding classic of Taoism. The Inner Chapters are the only sustained section of this text widely believed to be the work of Chuang Tzu himself, dating to the fourth century B.C.E. Witty and engaging, spiced with the lyricism of poetry, Chuang Tzu's Taoist insights are timely and eternal Brand: Counterpoint Press.

      You asked - "What is the best Zhuangzi book?" There is no 'best' as all the Zhuangzi books that I have, have parts that I have problem with in terms of how the Chinese ancient vernacular at the time of Zhuangzi has been translated into English. Si. The Way of Chuang Tzu (Second Edition) By: The Second Book of the Tao is a gift to contemporary readers, granting us access to our own fundamental wisdom. Mitchell's meditations and risky reimagining of the original texts are brilliant and liberating, not least because they keep catching us off-guard, opening up the heavens where before we.

    Chuang Tzu: Basic Writings includes the seven "inner chapters," which form the heart of the book, three of the "outer chapters," and one of the "miscellaneous chapters." Watson also provides an introduction, placing the philosopher in relation to Chinese history and thought. The book known as The Zhuangzi (Chuang Tzu) is considered to be one of the first and foremost texts on philosophical Daoism. It's placed on a par with Laozi's Dao De Jing. The Zhuangzi offers up stories and fables that can get the mind questioning and eventually laughing at the absurdities. Some of the text poses answers to intellectual and spiritual questions about life that seem to ring true.
