That dual goal, Hansen argues, requires a unified translation theory. It must provide a single coherent account of the issues that motivated both the recently untangled Chinese linguistic analysis and the familiar moral-political disputes. Hansens unified approach uncovers a philosophical sophistication in Daoism that traditional accounts have overlooked.
