The project Global Reception of the Classic Zhuangzi will organize a Zhuangzi reception month in September/October 2023. We will host four online events on Saturday, September 2, 9, 16 and October 7, respectively in which various scholars will explore the Zhuangzi's reception during the Six and Tang Dynasties. These events are free of charge and open to all, so please feel free to share this information with anyone interested in the Zhuangzi and its reception.
On September 9, 2023, Friederike Assandri (Leipzig University) and Jesse Chapman (independent scholar) will present their work on Cheng Xuanying and Guo Xiang's commentaries. Friederike Assandri will compare Guo and Cheng's different treatment of the sage and the true men of the past while Jesse Chapman will focus on how Guo Xiang reconciles the Horses Hoofs and Webbed Toes chapters with his own visions of governance and body politic.
