Descrizione

In this final volume, Wu Hsin continues his onslaught on the seemingly known while providing new insights into the mystery called Awareness.
One aspect that does not receive a lot of attention is that the reader should approach Wu Hsin with unwavering trust. Set aside all notions of what is already known and evaluate this message on the merits of its resonance with the reader. The math teacher is not questioned that 2+2 =4; it is taken as a priori.

Forward

There really isn’t anything to add to what I have written in the previous Forwards.

In this final volume, Wu Hsin continues his onslaught on the seemingly known while providing new insights into the mystery called Awareness.

One aspect that does not receive a lot of attention is that the reader should approach Wu Hsin with unwavering trust.

This was a period during which the ruling house of Zhou had lost much of its authority and power, and there was increasing violence between states.

The two most influential schools were that of Confucius and the followers of Mozi (Master Mo), the Mohists. The latter were critical of the elitist nature and extravagant behaviors of the traditional culture. The philosophical movement associated with the Daodejing also was emerging at this time. Wu Hsin's style of Daoist philosophy developed within the context defined by these three schools and appears to be most heavily influenced by that latter. In addition, it most clearly contains the seeds of what would become Ch’an Buddhism in China or Zen in Japan.

Wu Hsin was born in a village called Meng, in the state of Song. The Pu River in which Wu Hsin was said to have fished was in the state of Chen which had become a territory of Chu. We might say that Wu Hsin was situated in the borderlands between Chu and the central plains—the plains centered around the Yellow River which were the home of the Shang and Zhou cultures.
