About the book:

David Hinton is uniquely qualified to offer the definitive English version of the Tao Te Ching, rendering it with both philosophical rigor and poetic elegance.. Spirituality in ancient China was primarily a matter of dwelling at the deepest levels of a person's belonging to earth and its natural processes. This spiritual ecology traces its source back to the evocative silences of Lao Tzu's mysterious poetry. The single most important text ever composed in China, the Tao Te Ching has provided inspiration for every religious and philosophical system that followed in its wake. However familiar the Tao Te Ching may seem, Hinton's breathtaking translation reveals the myriad dimensions of this ancient text.

This spiritual ecology traces its source back to the evocative silences of Lao Tzu's mysterious poetry. The single most important text ever composed in China, the Tao Te Ching has provided inspiration for every religious and philosophical system that followed in its wake.In the past, virtually all translations of this text have been produced either by sinologists having little poetic facility in English, or by writers having no ability to read the original Chinese. However familiar the Tao Te Ching may seem, Hinton's breathtaking translation reveals the myriad dimensions of this ancient text.This volume is the last in Counterpoint's series of translations presenting the four central masterworks of Chinese thought.
