LITR 081CH. Transcending the Mundane: Taoism in Chinese Literature and Culture
(Cross-listed as CHIN 081 )
Chinese civilization has been imbued with Taoism for some two and one-half millennia, from popular belief and custom to intellectual and literary culture. In addition to consideration of the texts and contexts of both philosophical and religious Taoism, the class will examine the articulation and role of Taoism in Chinese literature and culture and the enduring implications of the Taoist ethos. All readings will be in English.
