Abstract

This book presents a systematic account of the role of the personal spiritual ideal of wu-wei--literally ""no doing,"" but better rendered as ""effortless action""--in early Chinese thought. Edward Slingerland's analysis shows that wu-wei represents the most general of a set of conceptual metaphors having to do with a state of effortless ease and unself-consciousness.

Abstract

The six lectures that make up this work were delivered in March 2011 at London University's School of Oriental and Asian Studies as the Jordan Lectures on Comparative Religion. They revolve around the intersection of two ideas, nothingness and desire, as they apply to a re-examination of the questions of self, God, morality, property, and the East-West philosophical divide.

Questions include: is torture ever justified? How are we to understand terrorism? Should we believe the claim that torture is sometimes necessary? Is conscientious o...
