Chapter Summary

This section presents works relevant to the analysis of the early phases of the Quanzhen religious movement, and the lives and teachings of Wang Chongyang and his first-generation disciples. The book presents an examination of Quanzhen Daoism from the perspective of comparative religious studies, specifically in terms of conceptions of self, religious praxis, and comparative mysticism. The study of "Daoism" is equated with the study of Chinese culture, history, and religion, and the field of Daoist Studies is dominated by a "Sinological approach"..

Keywords: Quanzhen Daoism; Quanzhen religious movement; Wang Chongyang
