The Way and Its Power. A Study of the Tao Te Ching.

£9.99

Product description

Arthur Waley was an English Orientalist and sinologist who achieved both popular and scholarly acclaim for his translations of Chinese and Japanese poetry.

The Tao Te Ching, along with the Zhuangzi, is a fundamental text for both philosophical and religious Taoism, and strongly influenced other schools, such as Legalism, Confucianism, and Chinese Buddhism.

This is not only a translation, but a full study; full contents in photo attached.

This is a 1942 reprint, the first being 1934. No jacket. Lightly browned, otherwise good.
