Product Description


"An excellent insight into classical and traditional approaches. Chinese humour is unique and important, and there has long been a need for an erudite and comprehensive account of its nature, philosophy and history." -- Christie Davies, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, University of Reading, UK

By Bao Pu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a translation and commentary of chapter 6 of the Huainanzi. LeBlanc does a good job, however, it would only be of interest 2 those REALLY interested in the Huainanzi. The footnotes often take up the entire page! Deals with the topic of Ganying - resonance/stimulus and response. Has an interesting chart documenting all the quotations used in the Huainanzi from other texts such as the Laozi, Zhuangzi, the Hanfeizi, etc.
