520    The Ethical Foundations of Early Daoism: Zhuangzi's Unique
       Moral Vision argues that we can read early Daoist texts as
       works of moral philosophy that speak to perennial concerns
       about the well-lived life in the context of the Way. Lee 
       argues that we can interpret early Daoism as an ethics of 
       attunement.|bThe Ethical Foundations of Early Daoism: 
       Zhuangzi's Unique Moral Vision presents a comprehensive 
       study of the normative dimensions of early Daoism in 
       general and the classic text Zhuangzi in particular. Lee 
       argues that our inclination to view Daoism as an amoral 
       tradition stems from Orientalist assumptions about Daoism 
       as well as our received assumptions about the nature of 
       morality. By enlarging the scope of morality, Lee suggests
       that early Daoist texts like the Zhuangzi can be read as 
       works of moral philosophy that speak to specifically moral
       concerns in ethics, government, and society. Lee casts the
       moral imperative of the Zhuangzi as an ethics of 
       attunement to the Way and develops this thesis in the 
       context of friendship, government, death, and human 
520 1  This is an elegant study of one of the world's most 
       insightful, original, and inspiring thinkers. Lee does a 
       fine job weaving various strands of the Zhuangzi into a 
       unified vision of human beings in harmony with or as he 
       aptly puts it attuned to the Dao. His reading offers a 
       compelling and immensely important alternative to 
       traditional Confucian and modern western interpreters who 
       attempt to portray Zhuangzi as an amoralist unconcerned 
       with values and indifferent to the world. Philip J. 
       Ivanhoe, Professor of East Asian & Comparative Philosophy 
       & Religion and Director of the Center for East Asian and 
       Comparative Philosophy (CEACOP), City University of Hong 
       Kong, Hong Kong. 'Dr. Lee's work presents a thoughtful and
       ingenious analysis of different aspects of ethical 
       thinking and moral living in the Zhuangzi. Making ample 
       use of a wide range of sources - ancient Chinese 
       philosophy, traditional Western thought, modern 
       scholarship in philosophy, anthropology, and more - it 
       highlights issues of universal harmony, community, 
       friendship, rulership, and death, weaving multiple strands
       of powerful reflection throughout. The book makes an 
       invaluable contribution to our understanding of moral 
       thinking in general and ancient Chinese thought in 
       particular.' Livia Kohn, Professor Emerita, Boston 
       University, USA 'Jung Lee's highly original analysis of 
       the implicit hidden ethical thinking in the Zhuangzi makes
       an important contribution to both the comparative 
       philosophy of religious ethics and to filling the gaps in 
       our understanding and appreciation of this important 
       classical Daoist work. It is a nuanced and fascinating 
       interpretation of the text.' Harold D. Roth Professor of 
       Religious Studies, Brown University, USA
