Chuang-Tzu (369-298 BCE)

Chuang-tzu (Zhuangzi) was born more than a century after the death of Confucius during the time of the Warring States (403-221 BCE) – when states fought for imperial power. During this time there arose many schools of thought, each attempting to describe how to return to a state of harmony. Confucius headed the most important of these. Two other important schools were the Mohists and the Daoists. Chuang-tzu’s philosophy was a brand of Daoism.

Chuang-tzu is considered one of the greatest literary and philosophical figure that China has produced. The text attributed to him, known as the Zhuangzi, was edited by Guo Xiang (Kuo Hsiang, d. 312 CE). He reduced it from 52 to 33 chapters.
