5.0 su 5 stelle best translation of "Cantongji" 17 febbraio 2012
Di Michael R. Saso - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Prof. Fabrizio Pregadio, one of the world's leading Daoist scholars, offers in this translation with commentary, a very readable and clearly explained version of an extremely important inner alchemy work called "Can tong qi" (Pronounced "tsan tong chi" in modern accent). In a very readable introduction (pp. 1-63) the origin and content of the present text is examined, after which the text itself is translated, pp. 69-126. The most important contribution of Pregadio's work is found in the extensive notes, pp. 130 to 244, which are easily understood by the lay person, and serve as a wonderful source of learning for upper division university and graduate seminars as well.The book concludes with tables and figures (245-260), the Chinese text (269-285), two indices (286-301), and bibliographical references (303-308). A must read! Recommended for university courses as well as the general public!

5.0 su 5 stelle One of the main Taoist texts 29 dicembre 2015
Di An File Dubh - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Although I like a lot of Thomas Cleary translations, and Eva Wong sometimes has some good stuff too, Pregadio's translation of what is more commonly referred to in English as 'The Triplex Unity' is a breath of fresh air. His introduction is scholarly, erudite, and in-depth, unlike the surface treatment we get in some other books on Taoism, where you have to read between the lines or outright ignore large portions of the intro altogether. Pregadio also gives extensive textual notes and detailed explanations of the concepts present in this essential early alchemical text. I call it an alchemical text, since that is what it is primarily known as, but Pregadio makes a strong and convincing case that alchemy is only one of the three strands of thought operative here (the other two being philosophical Taoism, and a sort of commentary on the 'I-Ching/Book of Changes'). 'The Seal of the Unity of the Three' also posits a distinction between the "superior virtue" of instant enlightenment (non-doing) and "inferior virtue" (alchemy, = doing), though the legendary author Wei Boyang doesn't really explain the method of superior virtue (it just has to happen intuitively it seems, as non-doing inherently implies no method) and, while he claims to reveal all (or most) of the alchemical methods, he still couches even this in sometimes obscure language. But anyone who's read Taoist texts before should not expect the full revealing of the method/s in writing. One is, as always, directed to a teacher and verbal transmission, though the contours are certainly given here, and Taoist history does not rule out individual insight as being fruitful. There is a lot to be gained from this book. It is also noteworthy for its early attack on "incorrect practices", with its dismissal of meditating on the "inner deities," of "having a point of concentration" (p. 80), of literal alchemy, of certain kinds of breathing exercises. For Wei Boyang, it's all about the "three ways": the cosmology of the I-Ching, the Taoism of the Tao Te Ching (Daode ching), and the inner alchemy as expressed here. This is a crucial Taoist text; if you are exploring the Taoist canon it is a must-read.

One brief aside -- doesn't the figure on the book cover (a painting of a Taoist immortal c. 1300) look a lot like the photo of Pregadio himself shown on this page? Perhaps he chose it as a sly joke?

Predagio makes the work easy to read, while providing extensive notes on the notoriously thick symbolism. He even provides the work in the Chinese. Many charts and drawings help one to understand not only the work, but the history behind it.
