Translator: Moss Roberts
Commentaries by: Moss Roberts

Paperback

Price: $14.95

Overview

The Dao De Jing is one of the richest, most suggestive, and most popular works of philosophy and literature. Composed in China between the sixth and fourth centuries B.C., its enigmatic verses have inspired artists, philosophers, poets, religious thinkers, and general readers past and present. This new translation captures the beauty and nuance of the original work. In addition, the extensive and accessible commentary by Moss Roberts sheds light on the work’s historical and philosophical contexts and shows how the Dao De Jing addresses topics of relevance to our own times, such as politics, statecraft, cosmology, aesthetics, and ethics.

"Roberts should be commended for paying close attention to the history of the text and the names, titles, and terms that are often used too carelessly."– "Reading Religion"
