Zhuangzi glossary



Tāng overthrew the Xia emperor Jie. Although Jie is universally recognized as corrupt, Zhuangzi seems to view Tang's act with suspicion, either as motivated by self-aggrandizement or as an effort to "fix" the world that is ultimately destined to do more harm than good. 

His name appears in 1:02, 8:01, 8:16. 10:02, and 12:07.
