In the sixth century B.C., the land of China had devolved into what became known as The Period of the Warring States. Ongoing civil strife, including outbreaks of violence and warfare, characterized a society out of control.
Two men—the legendary philosopher Lao Tzu and the noted teacher Confucius—stepped forward to offer counter but complementary resolutions to the chaos and conflict. Through an examination of their respective proposals, we will seek to discern features that speak to our own struggle with societal discord. Will it be yin or yang or a little bit of both?
