Daoism and Ecology: Ways within a Cosmic Landscape
Girardot, N.J.; Miller, James; Xiagan, Liu (eds.)2001
First collective work dealing in depth with the Taoist tradition and its contribution to the solution of current environmental challenges, written in a Western language. The authors of the 27 articles in this volume analyse the interrelation between the various different branches of Taoism and ecology, and examine the theoretical and historical implications associated with a Taoist view of the environment. Via an analysis of Taoist texts, the current Chinese cultural context and a number of classic texts, the application of Taoism to the current environment situation is assessed. This volume contributes to the comprehension of Taoist environmental philosophy and its religious dimension, and offers readers the chance to study and apply Taoism in general.
