A Daoist classic that has had a profound influence on Chinese thought, the Laozi or Daodejing, evolved into its present form sometime around the third century BCE and continues to enjoy great popularity throughout East Asia and beyond. Philip J Ivanhoe's lucid and philosophically-minded interpretation and commentary offer fresh insights into this classic work. In the substantial introduction and numerous notes, Ivanhoe draws attention to the issues at play in the text, often relating them to contemporary philosophical discussions and directing the reader to related passages within the Daodejing and to other works of the period. The Language Appendix, unique to this edition, offers eight translations of the opening passage by well-known and influential scholars and explains, line-by-line, how each might have reached his particular interpretation.

The Laozi, Daodejing (also published as The Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching) is a new translation and commentary for 2015 and beyond. Unlike many other translations, this book's commentary invites the reader into the interpretive process. It provides the reader with a look into the visuals that make up key Chinese characters in order to assist the reader in understanding its practical philosophy of Realism. The 2500 year old Chinese text is not about rights and wrongs, nor is it about trying to change the world so that it suits you. It is about how we regard value and how this sense of value may, in turn, inform ourselves. It is about how adapting ourselves to the world as it exists may make the world a better place in which all can live. It might best be regarded as self-help philosophy.

This new translation captures the beauty and nuance of the original work. In addition, the extensive and accessible commentary by Moss Roberts sheds light on the work’s historical and philosophical contexts and shows how the Dao De Jing addresses topics of relevance to our own times, such as politics, statecraft, cosmology, aesthetics, and ethics.

It provides a blank page opposite each chapter for the reader to record their own thoughts and ideas.

The Tao Te Ching, Dao De Jing, or Daodejing, also simply referred to as the Laozi, whose authorship has been attributed to Laozi, is a Chinese classic text. Its name comes from the opening words of its two sections: dao "way," and de "virtue/power," plus jing "classic." According to tradition, it was written around the 6th century BC by the 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, although the oldest excavated text dates back to the late 4th century BC. The text is fundamental to the Philosophical Taoism (Daojia) and strongly influenced other schools, such as Legalism and Neo-Confucianism. This ancient book is also central in Chinese religion, not only for Religious Taoism (Daojiao) but Chinese Buddhism, which when first introduced into China was largely interpreted through the use of Daoist words and concepts. Many Chinese artists, including poets, painters, calligraphers, and even gardeners have used the Daodejing as a source of inspiration. Its influence has also spread widely outside East Asia, and is amongst the most translated works in world literature. The Wade-Giles romanization "Tao Te Ching" dates back to early English transliterations in the late 19th century, and many people continue using it, especially for words and phrases that have become well-established in English. "Daodejing" is the pinyin romanization. The pinyin originated in the mid-20th century, and it is becoming increasingly popular, having been adopted as the official system by the Chinese government.

Laozis Daodejing The English and Chinese Translations Based on Laozis Original Daoism From Philosophical and Hermeneutical Perspectives ?????? ??????????? Your work on Lao Tzu promises to be very interesting. --Professor Sir Alfred Ayer (A.J.Ayer) I strongly recommend to you a new translation of Lao Tzu from a very remarkable translator, a Chinese lady Lee Sun Chen Org, who deeply believes in the importance of this work for humanity. --Professor Sir Karl Popper You should make an effort to let the world know of the true Laozi. I like both your Chinese and English translations of Daodejing. --Professor Chern Shiing-Shen????? The authentic philosophical Daoism was originated by Laozi through his meditation (private) and philosophizing(public). He has organized the piecemeal whimsical poetic thinking and incorporated them into his framework; that is the Daoism of Laozi. His book Daodejing embodies an integral frameworkand that should be tackled through philosophy. However, the language of his book is nearly four thousand years old; this hardship should be tackled through the Chinese hermeneutic. In addition, Laozis philosophical Daoism should be discerned from popular religious Daoism, a medley of fanciful thoughts and folklore. Accordingly, the single step to start the long and arduous journey to fathom the very deep wisdom of Laozi is to follow the roadmap of each individuals striving to understands oneself spiritually (self-realization) and the world scientifically. Chen Lee Sun(aka Lee Sun Chen Org): A self-taught and self-critical pursuer of truth as well as the meaning of life. She was a life-long follower of Laozis philosophy--Laoism, but attended Oxford University to study Western philosophy through winning a full scholarship awarded by Government in Taiwan. She has also worked for an MA on linguistics and Chinese hermeneutic in the University of California, Davis. Bertrand Ruseell had great influence on her in her early days. Later her mentor was A.J. Ayer. Most recently her philosophical thinking moved closer to Karl Poppers. Nevertheless Laozis thinking has had been her greatest influence.

View: 893

Challenges standard views of the origins of the Daodejing, revealing the work’s roots in a tradition of physical cultivation. Thomas Michael’s study of the early history of the Daodejing reveals that the work is grounded in a unique tradition of early Daoism, one unrelated to other early Chinese schools of thought and practice. The text is associated with a tradition of hermits committed to yangsheng, a particular practice of physical cultivation involving techniques of breath circulation in combination with specific bodily movements leading to a physical union with the Dao. Michael explores the ways in which the text systematically anchored these techniques to a Dao-centered worldview. Including a new translation of the Daodejing, In the Shadows of the Dao opens new approaches to understanding the early history of one of the world’s great religious texts and great religious traditions. “Michael’s work provides a fresh and innovative methodological approach to a well-known and much studied text. Unlike the vast majority of previous studies, which situate the Daodejing in an ahistorical philosophical realm divorced from ritual and practice, Michael’s analysis takes seriously the possibility that the text both contains and advocates for self-transformative practices. In addition, his translation, while not intended to be a stand-alone work, significantly contributes another important perspective. This excellent, groundbreaking book lays the foundation for a new round of vigorous debate and scholarly attention.” — Jeffrey Dippmann, coeditor of Riding the Wind with Liezi: New Perspectives on the Daoist Classic

A new and attentively restored dual-language edition of the 6th-century B.C.E. Chinese Philosophical and Spiritual classic, presented in the celebrated translation of James Legge with the original text at its side. Through 81 transcendent topics, Laozi dispenses his accumulated knowledge and original philosophy of peace and harmony, and the virtues of simplicity. He introduced the doctrine of meekness conquering brutality and repaying injury with kindness to a consistently unforgiving world. And, perhaps most importantly, he introduced the idea that behaviour is a choice, wisdom coming not from learning, but being. Foundational to Taoism, and highly influential in the West for over two centuries, the Dao De Jing's legendary wisdom and sagacious inversion of the apparent is a must read for every student of traditional Eastern philosophy, religion, spirituality, and history.

"Nonexistence, thus noted, is the origin to the universe. Existence, thus named, is the mother to all manifestations. Therefore, abide by the [Dào of] nonexistence in order to witness the transcendent wonders. Delve in the [Universe of] existence in order to uncover the disparate clues." ~Laozi•DàoDéJing~ This is an English translation of the ancient Chinese scripture DàoDéJing. The scripture is an encapsulation of the millennia year old insights, wisdoms, and philosophies of the Chinese civilization. DàoDéJing proclaimed that the Dào is the ultimate Truth and the true nature of things, whilst Dé is the qualitative manifestation of the Dào. Both the Dào and Dé are transcendental and perfect. Therefore DàoDéJing is literally "The Book of Transcendental Dào and Dé". This translation sought to unravel the cryptic and transcendental meanings of the scripture, which often sounds like a bunch of mumbo-jumbo. It is hope that the English speaking readers will find this translation a useful resource for getting an insight into the transcendental wisdoms of the author Laozi, who was regarded as the truly enlightened one throughout the Chinese history. It should also serve to provide a good glimpse into some of the Chinese philosophy, culture, customs and beliefs that, in many aspects, are firmly rooted in his teachings. A substantial list of quotable quotes by Laozi is given at the end of the book.
