about this item

A scholar of Daoism, Chen provides a detailed analysis and unique interpretation of Zhuangzi's inner, outer, and miscellaneous chapters. He does not focus on the philology, as many scholars do, but on a philosophical reading highlighting the main topics of self-cultivation, aesthetics, and epistemology. His perspectives range from the historical background of the Warring States Period to his own personal political experience, and being also a scholar of Nietzsche, he draws parallels between some of their perspectives.
