Description

What is Te? What is Taoism? What has Piglet to do with either? Te (pronounced "Deh") is Chinese for Virtue. Taoism is a Chinese philosophy. (Practically speaking, it's more than "Chinese, " and more than "philosophy, " but we'll get into the whys and hows of that further on, inside this book). And Piglet has quite a bit to do with both. What exactly? In the first place . . . That is, he . . . What we mean is . . . Perhaps we'd better let the author do the explaining. In any event, Piglet not only has quite bit to do with Te and Taoism; he also has quite a bit to do with you and me - as have Te and Taoism - whoever we may happen to be, whatever we may happen to be doing. And that is a Very Useful Thing to Know. As you will see.show more
