The Texts of Taoism: The Tao Te Ching, the Writings of Chuang-Tzu, and the Thai-Shang; Tractate of Actions and Their Retributions

James Legge

The Texts of Taoism is a comprehensive collection of three fundamental texts of Taoism: The Tao Te Ching, The Writings of Chuang-Tzu, and The Thai-Shang; Tractate of Actions and Their Retributions. The book is translated by James Legge, a renowned scholar of Chinese philosophy and religion. The Tao Te Ching is a classic text that outlines the principles of Taoism, including the concept of Yin and Yang, and the importance of living in harmony with nature. The Writings of Chuang-Tzu is a collection of stories and parables that illustrate the principles of Taoism in a more accessible and entertaining way. The Thai-Shang; Tractate of Actions and Their Retributions is a text that explores the concept of karma and the consequences of our actions. Legge's translation of these texts is highly regarded for its accuracy and clarity, making this book an essential resource for anyone interested in Taoism or Chinese philosophy.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
