New Book: Skill and Mastery: Philosophical Stories from the Zhuangzi

This valuable collection of illuminating analysis of skill stories from the Zhuangzi, a 4th century BCE Daoist text opens up new lines of inquiry in comparative East-West philosophical debates on skill, cultivation and mastery, as well as cross-disciplinary debates in psychology, cognitive science and philosophy.

Thanks to the editors of the series, PJ Ivanhoe, Sungmoon Kim and Eirik Lang Harris.

What a delight for Wai Wai Chiu and me to work with such amazing contributors: Frank Perkins, David Machek, Timothy Connolly, Romain Graziani, Steve Coutinho, Eric Schwitzgebel, James Sellman, Lisa Raphals, Chris Fraser, Wim De Reu, Albert Galvany, Chong Kim-chong and Hans-Georg Moeller.
