This translation captures the terse and enigmatic beauty of the ancient original and resists the tendency toward interpretive paraphrase found in many other editions. Along with the complete translation, Lombardo and Addiss provide one or more key lines from the original Chinese for each of the eighty-one sections, together with a transliteration of the Chinese characters and a glossary commenting on the pronunciation and meaning of each Chinese character displayed. This greatly enhances the reader's appreciation of how the Chinese text works and feels and the different ways it can be translated into English.

The Daodejing of Laozi

A Daoist classic that has had a profound influence on Chinese thought, the Laozi or Daodejing, evolved into its present form sometime around the third century BCE and continues to enjoy great popularity throughout East Asia and beyond. Philip J Ivanhoe's lucid and philosophically-minded interpretation and commentary offer fresh insights into this classic work. In the substantial introduction and numerous notes, Ivanhoe draws attention to the issues at play in the text, often relating them to contemporary philosophical discussions and directing the reader to related passages within the Daodejing and to other works of the period. The Language Appendix, unique to this edition, offers eight translations of the opening passage by well-known and influential scholars and explains, line-by-line, how each might have reached his particular interpretation.

Oriental Philosophy

A Westerner's Guide to Eastern Thought


Author: Stuart Cornelius Hackett

This insightful explication of oriental philosophy meets a long felt need for a critical introduction to four systems of eastern thought--Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism--presented in familiar western terms. Students of comparative religion, eastern philosophy and civilization, and the philosophy of religion who have been trained in traditional western modes of thought often find the intuitive and aphorisic quality of eastern writing a major stumbling block to understanding. This is eastern philosophy presented to westerners by a westerner, a practical and understandable guide for students and for others who wish to expand their understanding in this important area.

Eintausend Namen für Freude

Leben in Harmonie mit dem Tao


Author: Byron Katie,Stephen Mitchell

Zusammen mit dem Taoismus-Experten Stephen Mitchell erläutert Byron Katie das Tao Te King des chinesischen Weisen Lao Tse. Die oft als schwierig und verrätselt empfundenen Worte werden so erfrischend, lebendig und anekdotenreich behandelt, dass die klassische Weisheit ganz aktuell und anschaulich wird. Die geistige Verwandtschaft mit Prinzipien der genialen Fragetechnik „the Work“ wird hier ganz offenbar: Lao Tses Prinzip des „Wu Wei“ (Nicht-tun, Geschehen-lassen) stimmt in verblüffender Weise mit Byron Katies Aufforderung zu „Lieben was ist“ überein.

This book is an introduction in the very best sense of the word. It provides the beginner with an accurate, sophisticated, yet accessible account, and offers new insights and challenging perspectives to those who have more specialized knowledge. Focusing on the period in Chinese philosophy that is surely most easily approachable and perhaps is most important, it ranges over of rich set of competing options. It also, with admirable self-consciousness, presents a number of daring attempts to relate those options to philosophical figures and movements from the West. I recommend it very highly. --Lee H. Yearley, Walter Y. Evans-Wentz Professor, Religious Studies, Stanford University --- A substantial and highly accessible introduction to the indigenous philosophies of China. Van Norden shares his clear distillations of classical Chinese philosophies using conceptual frameworks many will find familiar. This reader-friendly book sets the historical and cultural contexts for the philosophies discussed, and includes appendices, study questions, and imaginative scenarios, which aid us in appreciating some of the most important philosophy ever developed. --Ann Pirruccello, Professor of Philosophy, University of San Diego --- This lucid introduction to early Chinese thought offers historical, textual and conceptual analyses of the schools of Classical Chinese philosophy, illuminating their basic themes, theories, and arguments and providing readers with an intellectual bridge between Chinese and Western thought. Introductory texts such as this are especially needed today, as the study of philosophy faces the challenges of globalization and the urgent need for dialogue among different philosophical traditions. --- An ideal text for introductory courses, this book will also inspire graduate students, scholars and experts in philosophy in general, and Chinese Philosophy in particular, with its theoretical insights and comparative methodology. --Vincent Shen, Lee Chair in Chinese Thought and Culture, Departments of Philosophy and East Asian Studies, University of Toronto

Public Services and Financial Austerity

Getting Out of the Hole?


Author: Roger Latham,Malcolm Prowle

Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan

ISBN: 0230296505

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 264

View: 2015

As countries across the Western world struggle to deal with the financial stability of their public services, there is no doubt that the current crisis affecting the public sector is not only the worst post-war, but perhaps the worst in the last hundred years. The current thinking about the economy and the public sector has not only contributed to the financial difficulties but may even have created some of the problems in the first place. As public sector reforms try to find a solution to the crisis, it seems unlikely that continuing with the same approach will provide a solution to the issue of public debt that will be politically or socially acceptable. This book argues that current policies may have some measure of success, but it may be "at a price we cannot afford". It proposes a radical alternative based upon a sound understanding of how organisations and the economy work and discusses practical ways it could be implemented. It also explores the threats, as well as the opportunities, that such an approach will face.

Der Dude ist nicht nur die unangefochtene Kultfigur aus 'The Big Lebowsky', er ist auch das Alter Ego von Jeff Bridges. Der bekannte Schauspieler aus fast fünfzig Hollywood-Filmen, ausgezeichnet mit dem Golden Globe Award und dem Oscar als bester Hauptdarsteller, ist als Privatperson niemals in Erscheinung getreten. Im Gespräch mit Zen-Meister Bernie Glassman entsteht der private Kosmos des zurückhaltenden, multitalentierten Künstlers, seine Ansichten über das Leben, seine Philosophie und seine größte Rolle.
