Abstract

Extract:
Chuang-tzu is traditionally classified as the second greatest Taoist after Lao-tzu. He is a remarkable thinker who deliberates on almost everything, including epistemology, morality, statecraft and behaviour, and his thought has influenced China for more than two thousand years. Since he loves to utilise fable, tales, humour, irony and other poetic techniques to express his views, he is often distorted by commentators. Therefore it is important to give him a more precise evaluation.
