Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

Taoism is an ancient Chinese school of thought concerning human existence. We will examine the ideas of Taoist thinkers like Lao-tzu, Chuang-tzu, and others to see how their views about the Tao, return, no-mind, and non-activity/naturalness provide a philosophy of the human condition.

Although it is not a requirement, it would be helpful if students brought the following book with them:

James Legge, The Texts of Taoism, volume 1, Dover 1981. ISBN 978-0486209906. This book can be easily ordered from any book shop or online.
