One Response to NYT on Ted Slingerland’s Trying Not To Try

  1. The last paragraph: “The sprouts were Mencius’ conception of wu wei: Something natural that requires gentle cultivation. You plant the seeds and water the sprouts, but at some point you need to let nature take its course. Just let the sprouts be themselves.”
    — Oops. Mencius claimed we didn’t need to plant any seeds.
