Competing interpretations of the inner chapters of the "zhuangzi"

Philosophy East and West 46 (2):247-268 (1996)
Abstract
In the Inner Chapters, arguments for a variety of different philosophical positions are present, including skepticism, relativism, particularism, and objectivism. Given that these are not all mutually consistent, we are left with the problem of reconciling the tensions among them. The various positions are described and passages from the Inner Chapters are presented illustrating each. A detailed commentary is offered on the opening of the Inner Chapters, arguing that it is best understood in an objectivist fashion. An interpretation is presented of Zhuangzi's view of sagehood that reconciles the various arguments in the text
