REVIEWS, EXCERPTS, & COMMENTS #
For twenty-five centures Laotse and the principles of Taoism have had an influence on Oriental thought and life second only to Confucianism. This volume of Laotse's complete writings, including the famous Chuangtse interpretations and commentaries, appears in an entirely new translation by Lin Yutang, who also provides an Introduction and many Notes. With its companion volume in the Modern Library, The Wisdom of Confucius (No. 306), the teachings of Laotse enrich the Western mind, offering the appealing doctrines of Taoism, so rich in humor, humility, and humantiy.
