Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Despite its overwhelming important to Chinese art and culture, Taoism is for the Western public the least familiar of the Chinese Three Teachings. This course aims to provide an introducing to the great tradition of Taoism, that brings together a philosophical movement 2000 years in the making, with a rich religion that is still alive today. It aims to explore the beginnings of Taoist thought in the late Bronze Age, the art of the early Taoist organised religion, the Taoist pantheon of gods and their different origins, the evolution of the image of the immortals, as well as the way in which the Taoist view of the cosmos is represented in different Chinese art forms. Through critical readings and seminar discussion, we aim to reach a critical understanding of different currents of Taoism and their art and material culture.
