Quick Reference

Zhaungzi (Chuang-tsu) may have been a contemporary of Laozi, the traditional founder of Daoism (see Daoism). Like Laozi, Zhuangzi was more mystical than his Confucian contemporaries, who preferred to deal with matters of this world. Zhuangzi stressed the possibility of the individual's letting go of the dualities of life in favor of union with the Dao, the “Way,” which is all of existence.
