This beautifully illustrated book introduces the reader to the history and development of Taoism, one of the great religious and philosophical movements in Chinese thought. Chapters include discussions on the concept of the Tao (or Way), the symbolism of Yin-Yang, the relationship between Taoism and the natural world and the work and philosophy of the leading Taoist sages. The last section of the book deals with Taoist art, the symbolism of plants and animals, the Taoist garden and the relationship of Taoism with Buddhism and Hinduism. This edited edition of selected chapters from J.C. Cooper's writings on Taoism contains 118 stunning colour illustrations and includes an index.
