Philosophy Of Tai Chi Chuan by Freya Boedicker
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The essence of Tai Chi Chuan lies in the rich philosophy of ancient China. While most Tai Chi practitioners are aware of the value that studying Chinese philosophy can bring to their practice, it is often difficult to pick out those texts that are most relevant to Tai Chi and connected to its development. "The Philosophy of Tai Chi Chuan" presents, for the first time, an overview of the Chinese martial and spiritual philosophies that drive Tai Chi Chuan, using fresh translations of the original texts and short histories of each work or author included. An extensive glossary fully explains important Chinese terms. This book includes key excerpts from such popular and widely-studied works as the "Tao Te Ching", the "I Ching", and "The Art of War", as well as writings by philosophers and strategists such as Zhuangzi and Wuzi, "The Philosophy of Tai Chi Chuan" offers readers a direct connection with the concepts that form the foundation of Tai Chi, inspiring a deeper understanding of the art and its applications.
