This article originated as a conference paper presented at the 2005 ISCP conference in Sydney. A revised version has now been published as “Zhuangzi and the Heterogeneity of Value,” in New Visions of the Zhuangzi, Livia Kohn, ed. (Three Pines Press, 2015), 40–58.
The paper is mainly a programmatic sketch of some features of Zhuangist ethics. In a few places, the arguments and interpretations are a bit too quick, but they may nevertheless be of some interest. The article is among the relatively few publications that touch directly on the relation between Zhuangist thought and ethical theory.
