Sam Bishop EALC 110 Lecture notes 1/30/2007 Dao = Way The Confucian Way is the way of moral rightness The Daoism (Daoist) Way Daode jing = way virtue classic Laozi wrote the Daode jing Li Dan- book keeper, expert on ritual Dao: how to be a good Daoist -hidden, nameless, subtle essence, manifest, nonbeing, clear, There is an aspect of the Dao that we cannot name- it is called the Way because that is the only thing one can think of The Dao Way is not a way of moral action The Way transcends ways of time and space- its always in motion, and never changes in its hidden aspect, it can’t be measured or perceived- it has no beginning and no end- its not a thing or a being- its not a God, has no feelings, no consciousness- its greater than heaven and earth- it’s the means that heaven and earth came into being. The Way is supreme natural law where things come to be on their own. Simplicity- completely natural, sometimes called the One- the grand uunifying principle that lies in all things.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
