Abstract

This thesis is a study on Zhuang-zi's theory of self-cultivation. "Mind" is an important concept in Zhuang-zi's philosophy. According to Zhuang-zi "mind" has dual character and its basic state includes the mind which is in keeping with Tao and the mind which is not. They separately refer to mind's natural state(靈府靈臺 之心) and unnatural state(成心). The former is compatible and harmonious while the latter is contradictory. The accomplishment of mind eventually means transcending unnatural mind and attaining mind's natural state. To realize natural mind, Zhuang-zi propose xinzhai(心齋)and zuowang(坐忘).
