Daoism and Ecology : Ways Within a Cosmic Landscape


SKU: 9780945454304 Categories: , Tag:


Other books in this series have already addressed the relation of ecology to Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, and Hinduism. This installment, penned mostly by academics in various departments of American universities, features 28 contributions, some of which look at specific Daoist writings like the Scripture of Great Peace and the Scripture of Unconscious Unification . Other offerings examine Daoism through contemporary trends as fengshui, deep ecology, wilderness, and environmental ethics. Ursula K. LeGuin (she translated the Tao Te Ching ) garners special attention: one essay is devoted to her, and the epilogue is written by her. In the latter, she brings ecology and the translation of Daoist texts together: “You feel toward them [Daoist texts] as the ecologist does toward a river or a desert: this is not to be abused, and if we use it we should do so very mindfully.” Distributed by Harvard University Press.
