- In the “Discussion on Making All Things Equal,” Chuang-Tzu argues that once one understands the “Way,” then one can respond “endlessly” to life. Part of this understanding requires us to see life as a play of interdependent opposites in a never-ending cycle of change (pp. 39-40).
In light of this view of life, and claims like: “There is nothing that is not so, nothing that is not acceptable,” can Chuang-Tzu’s philosophy offer a robust response to injustice, such as racism, sexism, wealth inequality, tyranny, etc., so as to right the wrongs (p. 40)?
Or, does Chuang-Tzu’s philosophy instead require that we understand right and wrong as interdependent, and thus, that we passively accept such injustice, and simply “let it be” (p. 38)?
