Sintesi dell'editore

Confucius (551-479 BCE) taught a moral wisdom that would become a predominant social force in China from the second century BCE until the mid-20th century. Confucianism does not teach a central doctrine that a God or gods should be worshipped, but it does embrace a system of ritual and emphasizes humanistic virtues and values. Daoism is both a philosophy and a religion, seeking a life and a mind in harmony with nature. Yin and yang, the essential opposites, are seen as fundamental principles of the universe in many religious and philosophical discussions.

The Religion, Scriptures, and Spirituality series describes the beliefs, religious practices, and the spiritual and moral commitments of the world's great religious traditions. It also describes a religion's way of understanding scripture, identifies its outstanding thinkers, and discusses its attitude and relationship to society.

Distracting quotation voices

An otherwise good narration by Kingsley is dragged down
by the cutsy accented voices that read the quoted excerpts. Distracting, annoying and sometimes barely intelligible. The book is informative, but this may be one case where the text version is a better read than the audio. A further, admittedly nitpicky, complaint is that often only dates (years and centuries) are given to identify time periods, without reference to dynasties. In Chinese history, to understand the context of an event, one really needs to know the dynasty when it occurred.

Great for anthropologists or studies

So as the title suggests...this would be a wonderful source of information for scholarly pursuits. However this is not my cup of tea. Entirely to much history and a little bit of philosophy. ( I’m a philosophy junkie) granted I did very much enjoy some parts and loved how they narrated it.

Super boring. Too much of a history lesson.

Finishing this book was a chore. If I hadn't already committed I would have quit.

loved it. Taoism is very interesting.

Taoism is very interesting and Confucius really had a great impact on the family structure and operations of the Asian culture and the modern effects can be seen to day through there work habits and educational standards.

Not Deep Enough for these Subjects

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. But only for those with some Chinese history background.

Would you recommend Confucianism and Taoism to your friends? Why or why not?

Good starting point to understand the interaction of these religions

Which scene was your favorite?

Not applicable. The discussion of early Taoism is fascinating.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. The material is way to deep and thought provoking for one sitting.

Any additional comments?

A good starting place to understand the original and progression of both religions. You should know a fair amount about Chinese history to appreciate this book although some superficial comparisons to Western religions and philosophies are included.
