Calvin (Zhuangzi) and Hobbes (Laozi)

It’s been a year since my last post. I’m currently working on a comprehensive essay on Wuwei 無為 and should publish it soon. It the meantime, this Calvin & Hobbes cartoon my friend Bradford shared with me tickles my fancy. While Calvin’s mention of “pleasures” is an inaccurate translation of one of Zhuangzi’s values (i.e. le 樂), it still seems to capture something about the two books I think. Calvin could also be seen as representing Yang Zhu’s view instead/as well. Calvin_and_Hobbes_Look Down the Road
