  1. “Are You Really Right? Am I Really Wrong?”: Responding to Debates in Zhuāngzǐ 2.Stephen C. Walker - forthcoming - Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-16.
    This essay examines the questions raised about debate in Zhuāngzǐ 莊子 2, the practical advice this chapter offers us for dealing with debates when they arise, and some of the questions that will predictably occur about how and why to apply that advice. On the present interpretation, Zhuāngzǐ 2 argues that joining any side in a verbal conflict promotes continued conflict, and that only appreciating and working along with each speaker’s distinct point of view affords us access to what is (...)

  • Confucius’ Zhong-Shu and Zhuangzi’s Qiwu: Zhang Taiyan’s Parallel Interpretation.Cheng Wang - 2017 - Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy 16 (1):53-71.
    To avoid the one-sidedness and abuse of the rule of xieju 絜矩, Zhang Taiyan 章太炎 redefines zhong-shu 忠恕, the Confucian golden rule, as two separate yet complementary principles, the idea of which is most manifestly drawn from Zhuangzi’s 莊子 “Qiwulun 齊物論”. Zhang’s association of zhong-shu and qiwu 齊物 is based upon his vision of equality premised on recognition of and respect for differences. In Zhang’s reading of the Zhuangzi in light of Yogācāra, the crucial “concept matching” is the explanation of (...)

  • The Happy Slave Isn't Free: Relational Autonomy and Freedom in the Zhuangzi.Mercedes Valmisa - 2019 - Philosophy Compass 14 (3):e12569.
    This paper challenges the view that contentment leads to personal freedom and autonomy and argues for a relational and exercise concept of de facto freedom in the Zhuangzi 莊子. I first review influential interpretations of freedom in the Zhuangzi that equate freedom with contentment and nonfrustration, starting with Guo Xiang's 郭象 (d. 312 CE). By putting these interpretations in dialog with contemporary social philosophy (Christman, Meyers, Pettit, Elster, and Khader), I reflect on the two seminal problems of the psychologizing causal (...)

  • Freedom and Agency in the Zhuangzi: Navigating Life’s Constraints.Karyn Lai - 2021 - British Journal for the History of Philosophy 30 (1):3-23.
    The Zhuangzi, a 4th century BCE Chinese text, is optimistic about life unrestrained by entrenched values. This paper contributes to existing debates on Zhuangzian freedom in three ways. First, it reflects on how it is possible to enjoy the freedom envisaged in the Zhuangzi. Many discussions welcome the Zhuangzi’s picture of release from life shaped by canonical visions, without also giving thought to life without these driving visions. Consider this scenario: in a world with limitless possibilities, would it not be (...)

  • Traces of Darkness in Early Daoism: The Evolution of Vision Metaphors in the Laozi.Roy Porat - 2021 - Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy 20 (3):407-431.
    An interesting feature of the language of many Daoist texts is their atypical idealization of Darkness and Obscurity, which contrasts with the positive connotations of Light and Clarity in virtually all great philosophical traditions. This article highlights a formerly unnoted difference between the received and the excavated Guodian 郭店 versions of the Laozi 老子, which reveals an interesting change in the use of Light/Darkness symbolism through the evolution of the text: while the received Laozi uses both metaphorical schemes to roughly (...)

  • Epistemic Detachment From Distinctions and Debates: An Investigation of Yiming in the ‘Qiwulun’ of the Zhuangzi.Fan He - 2021 - Asian Philosophy 31 (3):240-253.
    ABSTRACT This article investigates a central yet perplexing term yiming in the ‘Qiwulun’ chapter of the Zhuangzi. Yiming describes a crucial way to detach from epistemic distinctions and debates. This term is often explained as ‘using ming’ or contradictorily as ‘stopping ming’. Yet neither of the two explanations can provide a full understanding of how yiming is adopted. I take three steps to explain yiming. First, taking an etymological approach, I argue that ming can be formulated as ‘X shining on (...)
