Existential Psychology and the Way of the Tao : Meditations on the Writings of Zhuangzi Paperback / softback

Edited by Mark C. (Saybrook University, San Francisco, California, USA) Yang

Description

In ancient China, a revered Taoist sage named Zhuangzi told many parables.

In Existential Psychology and the Way of the Tao, a selection of these parables will be featured.

Following each parable, an eminent existential psychologist will share a personal and scholarly reflection on the meaning and relevance of the parable for psychotherapy and contemporary life.

The major tenets of Zhuangzi's philosophy are featured.

Taoist concepts of emptiness, stillness, Wu Wei (i.e. intentional non-intentionality), epistemology, dreams and the nature of reality, character building in the midst of pain, meaning and the centrality of relationships, authenticity, self-care, the freedom that can come from one's willingness to confront death, spiritual freedom, and gradations of therapeutic care are topics highlighted in this book.
