About the author (2012)

Victor H. Mair is a translator of Chinese texts including Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching: The Classic Book of Integrity and the Way. He is also the editor of the Cambria Sinophone World series and the co-author of The True History of Tea. Mair is Professor of Chinese Language and Literature at the University of Pennsylvania, where he has been teaching since 1979.

The way of life defined in the Tao Te Ching was developed by ancient sages who lived in China some two thousand years ago. Lao Tzu, known as the Old One, was one such sage who practiced "the way," although there were almost certainly other religious thinkers who contributed further ideas and wisdom to it.
