Genuine Pretending: On the Philosophy of the Zhuangzi

Paperback, 17/10/2017, £32.00
£28.80
This book presents an innovative reading of Daoist philosophy that highlights the critical and therapeutic functions of satire and humor. Moeller and D'Ambrosio show how the Zhuangzi expounds the Daoist art of "genuine pretending": the paradoxical skill of enacting social roles without submitting to them or letting them define one's identity.
