|Daoism: Nature, Gods, Immortals
|Daoism is the only indigenous religion of China and its most famous text, the Daodejing, is the second most translated text in the world. However, as a religion and philosophy it has often defied definition. In recent history it has even been suppressed in China as a feudal superstition. This course will explore the historical and social role of a variety of Daoist movements and individuals within China throughout history and into the present. We will explore different varieties of Daoism as they are expressed on the individual and communal level through key figures in the tradition including lay followers, priests, immortals, and martial artists. As we learn about key concepts in Daoist thought, we will also be examining our understanding of concepts central to life today such as religion, culture, and nature. How are these terms constructed and what role do they have in shaping our experience of the world?
