About the book:

Presents wide-ranging and up-to-date interpretations of the Zhuangzi, the Daoist classic and one of the most elusive works ever written.

A literary and philosophical masterpiece of its age, and yet one of the most puzzling and elusive texts ever written, the Zhuangzi has been continuously reinterpreted. Here the age-old hermeneutic project of reading the Zhuangzi is brought up to the present with new essays addressing an array of interrelated topics from a variety of perspectives. These include how the work stands in relation to such issues as mystical experience, "skeptical" and "relativist" attitudes, individual value, ethical orientation, folk psychologies and popular beliefs, and rhetorical logic and structure. By providing ten "uneven" perspectives on such matters, this volume contributes to the ongoing discourse on Zhuangzi's philosophy by placing it within our present interpretive context and pushing that context to new limits.

&a fine collection of essays on the philosophy of the Zhuangzi.  Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy

Anyone seriously interested in the Zhuangzi should own Hiding the World in the World. And several of its contributions are worthy of very careful attention. Kudos to Scott Cook for editing and contributing to this fine anthology!  China Review International

"Scott Cook has done an excellent job of putting together a first-rate anthology of current research on the Zhuangzi. This is a scholarly collection that is also enjoyable and entertaining to read. It contains insights that, I would hope, will inspire new directions of research in the study of Zhuangzi's philosophy." Steven Coutinho, Towson University

Contributors include Scott Cook, Alan Fox, Paul Rakita Goldin, Chad Hansen, Shuen-fu Lin, Dan Lusthaus, Michael J. Puett, Harold D. Roth, Rur-bin Yang, and Brook Ziporyn.
