Traditional Chinese Culture Series
The wisdom of the classsics in comics
Tsai Chih Chungs books have sold over 40 million copies in 44 countries around the world
The writings of Chinese early thinkers have influenced all facets of Chinese culture and society, from education to art, from politics and warfare to common etiquette. The popular comic book artist TSAI CHIH CHUNG has faithfully brought the wisdom of these classics to life with his uniquely charming illustrations.
This series on Traditional Chinese Thought features the great thinkers of Chinese history, including:
- Confucius, the sage of harmonious living
- Laozi, the Daoist sage of natural living
- Zhuangzi, the Daoist sage of freedom and spontaneity
- Sunzi, the sage of winning without warring
- Zen masters, the sages of living in the moment
TSAI CHIH CHUNG first came to prominence through his award-winning animated movies and his immensely popular daily comic strips. When he turned his hand to the classics after a prolonged period of self-education, they were acclaimed by critics and shot to the top of the bestsellers lists. His books have been published in America by the renowned publishers Princeton University Press and Knopf.
Brian Bruya is translator of the American editions and received his Ph.D. in Comparative Philosophy from the University of Hawaii. He is a professor and interpreter of early Chinese Philosophy and Managing Editor of Shuhai Wenyuan, a website for the study of Chinese philosophy.
