Overview

Traditionally attributed to Lao Tzu, an older contemporary of Confucius (551 – 479 BC), it is now thought that the work was compiled in about the fourth century BC. An anthology of wise sayings, it offers a model by which the individual can live rather than explaining the human place in the universe. The moral code it encourages is based on modesty and self-restraint, and the rewards reaped for such a life are harmony and flow of life.

Praise

“It would be hard to find a fresh approach to a text that ranks only behind the Bible as the most widely translated book in the world, but Star achieves that goal. . . . As fascinating to the casual scholar as it is for the serious student.” -NAPRA ReView “Jonathan Star’s Tao Te Ching achieves the essential: It clarifies the meaning of the text without in the slightest reducing its mystery.” -Jacob Needleman
