Chuang-tzu Chapter Seven: Rules for Ruling

Chapter seven of the Chuang-tzu is sometimes called "The Normal Course for Kings and Rulers," but Cleary calls it "Responsive Leadership."  I make a mistake often and say "responsible leadership."  But perhaps leadership is only responsible when it is responsive,  At any rate, both words come from the Latin word (respondere) meaning "to promise," and also from a much more ancient word (spend) meaning a ritual or sacred act.  Heavy stuff -- responsibility and responsiveness.  So how does one govern responsibly?...Collapse )
