Product description

Review

In his rigorous scholarship of textual archaeology and mystical hermeneutics, Harold Roth has given us invaluable insights, the analytical tools and a perspective to examine the religious traditions of not only China, but of the rest of the world as well.--Franklin J. Woo "China Review International "

Searching for the origins of things remains a perennial favorite of Western scholars. For millennia, this quest has been at the core of innumerable scholarly projects.... Harold Roth'sOriginal Tao: Inward Training and the Foundations of Taoist Mysticism continues this time-honored investigation, applying it to Taoist mystical writings, in a search for what Roth calls 'the original tao.'--John A. Tucker "Philosophy East & West "

Here is a work that does justice to the beauty of this long poem, for so long neglected to the virtually exclusive benefit of Zhuangzi and Laozi.... The reader will find in the quality of the textual edition, in the numerous translation discoveries, and in the willingness to provide maximum coherence to this text, a profound and original effort.--Romain Graziani "T'oung Pao "

An estimable achievement by one of the foremost scholars of early Taoism in North America... powerful and original.--Paul Rakita Goldin "Sino-Platonic Papers "

-- Thomas Michael, The Journal of Religion
