Here's an action you may want to take: Sit down for this news!

 

I'm going to start reading ChuangTzu.

I have the Feng/English translation of Inner Chapters.

I'm sure there's a Chapter 1 thread here somewhere...lol... so I'll be doing a lot of bumping up - if that's okay?

I figure with half a brain left it's the perfect time...B):P:lol:

Yes, I'm glad I was sitting down when I read that.

 

Please, revive any of the Chapter/Sections you wish at any time.

 

I actually wish we were doing the study with Burton Watson but things just worked out for us to use Mair's translation.

 

Taoist Text has on occasion posted section translations by others for comparison and I will invite you to do the same for any of the Chapter/Sections already posted.

 

 

I would also invite you to rad Lin Yutang's Inner Chapters.  It is on-line.

 

And, of course, there is Nina's translation.

 

Surely you remember Nina?

Nina is unforgettable I notice her forum is gone.  Is her translation still online? If so, I'll find it, and the LinYutang as well, guessing terebess is a good place to look.

 

I had a chance to review the thread titles in this Section; I'll use the Mair ones for anything I cant resist saying, lol; likely I'll just click the heart or sad from time to time - to express agreement or disagreement - without further unnecessary comment.

 

I still think ZZ is extraneous to LZ, at least I think I still think that. Time will tell, and I remain open minded.

 

Thanks!

Yes, Nina's Chuang Tzu translation is still on-line.

 

Lin's is at Terebess last time I looked.

 

I would still enjoy your comments whenever you think Chuang Tzu may have drifted from the philosophy of Lao Tzu.  That is, anything besides government stuff.  Chuang Tzu didn't say as many nice things about government as Lao Tzu did.

Not in my opinion.  Too many differences in their personal philosophies, especially about governments.
