Course Description

HIST 146
Dao and the World of Daoism
Spring

To the Chinese, the world is not the result of creation by a Creator-God; it just is. The question, then, is: What kind of civilization is it possible to develop in an uncreated, Godless universe? This course inquires into the fascinating productivity of this all-encompassing, always transforming but uncreated universe--the Dao or the Way--and examines the wisdom, sophistication, and indeed modern relevance of its manifestations in various domains--art, philosophy, religious beliefs, ecological reflections, etc.--of Chinese life.
