The A to Z of Taoism, Paperback / softback Book

The A to Z of Taoism Paperback / softback

Part of the The A to Z Guide Series series

Description

Taoism, the set of philosophical teachings and religious practices rooted in the understanding of the Chinese character Tao, or "The Way," was founded by the Chinese philosopher Laozi in the 6th Century BCE, whose work, the Tao Te Ching (The Book of the Way and its Virtue) laid the philosophical foundation for the religion's beliefs.

This volume starts, as it should, with a detailed chronology of Taoism and its relationship both to China and other teachings.

The introduction inserts it further in this basic context.

Then the dictionary section, consisting of several hundred cross-referenced entries, provides a more detailed treatment of significant persons, nonpersons (gods and demons), concepts, practices, rituals, scriptures, and schools.

The bibliography suggests further reading.
