Second specialized symposium on the text of Laozi (Dao De Jing) will take place in St. John under the Rock near Prague, the Czech Republic December 28-30th, 2011. It will concern archaeological, historical, philosophical, and religious contexts of Dao De Jing on the one hand, and the textual analysis and hermeneutics of chapters 4-9 and the possibilities of their alternative translation on the other.
