Great Ideas of the Zhou—Daoism

Lecture no. 9 from the course: Foundations of Eastern Civilization

Great Ideas of the Zhou—Daoism

Taught by Professor Craig G. Benjamin | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Continue your study of great Chinese philosophy with a thorough examination of Daoism, which runs counter to Confucianism’s rationality and civic engagement. Daoism offers a path for humans to live in harmony with the natural world and the cosmos by retreating from the world of politics and society.
