Beginning with an eloquent discourse on the Chinese language, renowned advocate of Eastern philosophy Alan Watts goes on to describe the origins and essence of Taoist philosophy, as well as the concepts of wu wei--a natural or effortless action--and Te, the power that results thereof. Drawing on ancient and modern sources, this treatise gives the same careful attention to Tao that Zen Buddhism received in Watts’s classic The Way of Zen. His sources include writings by Chinese philosophers Laozi and Zhuang Zi, as well as the I Ching and modern studies by scientist Joseph Needham, writer and inventor Lin Yutang, and sinologist Arthur Waley.
