Project Details


In order to elucidate the meaning of Taoism in the new age, this project takes into account what traditional Taoist can say about the issues of embodied knowing based on Taoism classic, through a comparative study. According the embodied theses implied in Taoism, this plane has been divided into two one-year stages to explore them: (1)Embodied Knowing in Huai-Nan-Tzu: to search for how the mind is embodied in the whole organism embedded in its environment and how embodied knowing emerges from the dynamic co-determination of self and other in Taoist classic. This project is a further study of my articles about Taoism “knowing the Way” (2) Taoism Health Preservation and the Cultivation of Embodied Knowledge: to explore the idea of cultivating embodied knowing through Health Preservation in Taoism .
