Although written more than 2,500 years ago and within a radically different culture, the Tao Te Ching’s concepts and teachings have become more influential in the West than ever before.
Laozi, the Chinese sage and founder of Taoism, sets out a path (tao) that allows us to tune in to the nature of the universe. His axioms are intended to help us achieve transcendence and a life of integrity and balance: they explore the importance of male and female complementary qualities while praising self-knowledge and criticizing rational understanding. Among his insights are the beliefs that flexibility and suppleness are superior to rigidity and strength, and that self-absorption and self-importance are vain and destructive.
This illustrated edition of a classic work is an essential addition to any home library of the world’s classic philosophical texts.
