Zhuangzi: Thinking through the Inner Chapters is a major contribution to the philosophical understanding of Zhuangzi as seen by the foremost representative of new Chinese scholarship. Besides giving detailed readings of all seven Inner Chapters, the book also provides historical and textual context plus an in-depth examination of key philosophical concepts. Providing new and often startling insights, it flushes out the relevance of Zhuangzi's thought especially in relation to Confucian and Mohist teachings as well as to Chinese history and culture. A must for anyone interested in Chinese and comparative philosophy.
In a series of careful readings Bo Wang shows the unity of thought of the Inner Chapters. Here the Zhuangzi gets its volume and resonance from the Chinese tradition, and unobstructed by Western problems of philosoph, the essential Zhuangzi comes to view: his crazy autonomy, the full virtue of his no-mind that equalizes things and transcends body and society in clear awareness, and his immense aloneness oblivious to the rites and virtues of a world beyond saving.
