Lao Tsu, also known as Lao Tzu or Laozi, is an ancient Chinese philosopher and sage, and an absolutely central figure in Asiatic culture. He is known as the author of the "Tao Te Ching" or "Daodejing" and the founder of Taoism. In traditional China, Taoism is a way of living in harmony with the Tao, "way", "path", or "principle", something that is both the source of, and the force behind, everything that exists. Throughout history, Laozi's work has been embraced by various anti-authoritarian movements, because his style is designed to elicit critical thinking through ambiguousness.
Written around the 6th century BC by the sage Laozi and read by Emma Topping.
"A quirky but worthwhile version"
While debate continues about the historicity of Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, the collection of sayings attributed to him, has remained one of the most influential religious texts of all time. Using simple yet profound language, the author probes the eternal mystery of the Tao, the elusive substrate which underlies all creation.
Turning to the ancient wisdom of China for insight into conducting business both effectively and compassionately this program will guide executives with fundamental teachings on the topics of leadership, strategy, selling, personnel, and ethics from the writings of Confucius, Chuang Tzu, Lao Tzu, and others to present a practical vision for the executive who strives to maintain formidable status in the ever-changing business world.
