Book Overview

One of the best-selling English-language translations of the Taoteching.

A refreshing new translation. . . . Highly recommended.--Library Journal

With its clarity and scholarly range, this version of the Taoteching works as both a readable text and a valuable resource of Taoist interpretation.--Publishers Weekly

Read it in confidence that it comes as close as possible to expressing the Chinese text in English.--Victor Mair, professor of Chinese studies, University of Pennsylvania

Lao-tzu's Taoteching is an essential volume of world literature, and Red Pine's nuanced and authoritative English translation--reissued and published with the Chinese text en face--is one of the best-selling versions. Features that set this volume apart from other translations are its commentaries by scores of Taoist scholars, poets, monks, recluses, adepts, and emperors spanning more than two thousand years. I envisioned this book, Red Pine notes in his introduction, as a discussion between Lao-tzu and a group of people who have thought deeply about his text.

until they become good
to the true they are true
to the false they are Read More chevron_right
