Previous scholarship has approached the relationship of religions and ecology by examining how those traditions might be relevant to addressing environmental problems. Instead, a decolonial approach to the study of Daoism leads to insights that challenge the very framework of modern categories of religion and nature. These insights, teased out over the course of the book, inspire a practical alternative to the framework of modernity, one that can help produce the optimal flourishing of human life on earth.
