Daoist Mystical Philosophy: The Scripture of Western Ascension
Livia Kohn presents the first Western introduction to this aspect of traditional Chinese religious and culture. Through her careful textual study and fully annotated translation of the Scripture of Western Ascension, she delineates the history, structure, and contents of what mystical thought meant within the Daoist religion. She also discusses the religious background of the text and provides detailed analyses of philosophical concepts in chapters called "The Physical Universe," "Mind, Knowledge, Language," and "The Way of the Sage."
