To age with the sun and moon and be renewed by spring and summer, to conserve the seeds of growth in autumn and winter and to be nourished by the eternal breath of the Tao—these are the goals of the Taoist alchemists, the masters of the arts of health, longevity, and immortality. This book is a translation of a concise Taoist alchemical manual known as the Dragon-Tiger Classic, along with its two most important commentaries. The classic, written in ancient times by an unknown author and published during the fifteenth century BCE, is regarded by contemporary Taoist practitioners as the most complete guide to spiritual transformation. It covers the three forms of Taoist practice: • External alchemy, concerned with the ingestion of minerals, herbs, and other substances to attain health, longevity, and immortality • Sexual alchemy, in which the practitioner uses the energy of a sexual partner to cultivate his or her own energy • Internal alchemy, the practice of meditation, calisthenics, and yogic postures to cultivate mind and body An extensive introduction by the translator and the inclusion of two commentaries by traditional Chinese authors aid the reader in understanding this concise, symbolic text.

Chinese and Western thinkers consider the Chinese philosophical tradition and Chinese philosophy for the contemporary global era. This book treats Chinese philosophy today as a global project, presenting the work of both Chinese and Western philosophers. Providing contemporary considerations of the Chinese philosophical tradition and bringing Chinese philosophy into conversation with Western philosophy, Chinese Philosophy in an Era of Globalization provides a model for collaborative work. Topics covered include value theory, philosophy of religion, human nature, virtue ethics, epistemology, and philosophy of language. “Much can be learned from a reading of this text, much about contemporary Chinese philosophy and the state of Sino-Anglophone comparative philosophical discussions.” — Journal of Chinese Religions "As we move toward a global society, understanding the people and traditions of other cultures becomes increasingly more important. This book's direct interaction between scholars is seen far too rarely, making it a major contribution to its field." — Douglas W. Shrader, coauthor of Pathways to Philosophy: A Multidisciplinary Approach Contributors include Stephen C. Angle, Miranda D. Brown, Kelly James Clark, Zhang Dainian, Stephen T. Davis, Zhao Dunhua, Robert W. Foster, Eric L. Hutton, Philip J. Ivanhoe, Wan Junren, Chen Lai, Alasdair MacIntyre, Alvin Plantinga, Kwong-loi Shun, Edward Slingerland, Bryan W.

In 1907, in a remote region of China, explorers discovered a vast treasure trove of ancient scrolls. Dating from the 5th to 11th centuries AD, they recounted a Taoist interpretation of Jesus' life and teachings that was beautiful, inspiring and unique. In The Jesus Sutras eminent theologian Martin Palmer provides the first popular history and translation of these extraordinary sacred texts. They offer a gentler, more spiritual Christianity, and provide an important spiritual message for us today.

Recent years have seen the emergence of a unique Taiwanese consciousness. What this so-called Taiwanisation is and how it came about are addressed in the first article. The evolution of this Taiwanese consciousness, and how it is perceived and presented by major political parties like the Democratic Progressive Party, the Kuomintang, the People First Party and the New Party, are then discussed. The process appears to be an irreversible one which might lead to Taiwan's self-determination.The second article offers a working definition of Taiwanisation. It then spells out the significance of understanding Taiwanisation and the motivations of the proponents of the Taiwanisation policy. A number of reasons are given as to why such a policy is necessary. The authors examine the strategies and tactics in implementing the Taiwanisation policy, weighing its effectiveness, Beijing's reaction, and the problems and prospects of pursuing this policy.
