Zhuangzi, a Chinese text of the late fourth century BCE mostly written by a man of the same name, is gaining recognition as a classic of world literature for its beautiful prose and poetry, its humor, and its apparently irrefutable logic attacking claims of knowledge about the world and what is right and wrong with it. Here six essays query how he remained so cheerful with such a seemingly dreary philosophy. They compare him to Greek philosophers, analyze his thoughts on and use of language, the religious and spiritual dimensions, and applications to modern critical theory and moral philosophy. Two of the essays are reprinted from Philosophy East and West, the issue not identified. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
