Abstract

Abstract:

In this article we investigate levels of time in the Zhuangzi, through a conceptual framework rooted in Leibniz' philosophy of time. We begin by drawing three different levels of time in Leibniz: cognition-based, experiencebased, and world-based. We then show that not only can parallel levels of time be identified in the Zhuangzi, but also a distinctively new, that is, fourth level of time can be distinguished, which pertains to bodily skill. We finally discuss the significance of this study in a contemporary context.
