I plan to read the Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff. I don’t know that much about Taoism except that it was founded by LaoTzi who had a positive outlook on life. I studied Taoism in a class I took last semester called Perspectives in Philosophy but we didn’t go over any of the basics or beliefs of Taoists. The only thing we went over in class is how LaoTzi was the most optimistic out of Confucious and Buddha, and that he believed that the world is made up of natrual cycles. I love Whinnie the Pooh and I am excited to see how Hoff makes the connection between a religion and a storybook.
