The Lieh-tzu is a collection of stories and philosophical musings of a sage of the same name who lived around the fourth century BCE.
Lieh-tzu’s teachings range from the origin and purpose of life, the Taoist view of reality, and the nature of enlightenment to the training of the body and mind, communication, and the importance of personal freedom.
This distinctive translation by Eva Wong presents Lieh-tzu as a friendly, intimate companion speaking directly to the reader in a contemporary voice about matters relevant to our everyday lives.
