Revealing the Mind of the Sage: The Narrative Rhetoric of the "Chuang Tzu."
Kirkwood, William G.
Rhetoric Society Quarterly, v22 n3 p6-19 Sum 1992
Argues that one of the formative texts of Taoism, the "Chuang Tzu," is worthy of study by rhetoric scholars because it reveals a unique approach to rhetoric in its attempt to disclose the mind of the sage not through logic but through intuition, and it shows how storytelling can acquaint people with previously unsuspected possibilities of thought and action.
