Description

Fundamental to Chinese philosophy and religion, the "Tao Te Ching" is a simple guidebook for virtue, encouraging peace, understanding and humility. Ranging from political advice to common wisdom, it has also served as an inspiration to artists across the ages and throughout the world. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

Author description

Lao Tzu is traditionally regarded as the author of the Tao Te Ching, and is said to be a contemporary of Confucius (551-479 BC).
