Professor Fung Yu-lan is a distinguished contemporary Chinese philosopher. Chuang-tzu is the textbook he used to teach a course on Chuang Tzu in the Beijing Chinese Language School during the 1920s. The Chuang-tzu, one of China's most important Taoist works, forms connecting link between the preceding Book of Lao Tzu and the following Book of Huai Nan Tzu. It brims with ideas by means of images, shedding light on philosophy through the aid of fables. This book contained the translation of the first seven chapters of the Chuang-tzu and an article entitled Some Characteristics of the Philosophy of Kuo Hsiang appeared as an appendix.
