Katrin Froese is Associate Professor of Religious Studies and Philosophy at the University of Calgary and the author of Rousseau and Nietzsche: Toward an Aesthetic Morality.
The book series is led by an international team of editors, whose work represents the full range of current Nietzsche scholarship.
Zhuangzi elucidates this mystical philosophy through humor, parable, and anecdote, using non sequitur and even nonsense to illuminate truths beyond the boundaries of ordinary logic. Boldly imaginative and inventively written, the Zhuangzi floats free of its historical period and society, addressing the spiritual nourishment of all people across time. One of the most justly celebrated texts of the Chinese tradition, the Zhuangzi is read by thousands of English-language scholars each year, yet, until now, only in the Wade-Giles romanization. Burton Watson's conversion to pinyin in this book brings the text in line with how Chinese scholars, and an increasing number of other scholars, read it.
