*4pm Saturday June 18*


**“Sceptical questions from Chinese philosophy”*


*Our speaker, Karen Lai, *Associate Professor of Philosophy at the 
University of NSW*. *will discuss Zhuangzi, a 4^th century BCE Chinese 
philosopher, one of the foundational figures in the philosophy that has 
come to be known as Daoism. Professor Lai will introduce us to some of 
his ideas, and style of philosophising, as set out in /The Zhuanzgi/, a 
later editing of his work. This text uses unsettling imagery and 
stories, some of which involve talking animals, deformed trees and 
hunchbacks, to muddy our presumption of a stable and unchanging world.


*Come and join us for a stimulating talk and lively discussion *at the 
Hall at the Blackheath Neighbourhood Centre, cnr Gardiner Crescent & the 
Great Western Highway, 4pm-6pm, followed by informal discussion at the 
pub.Admission $10 includes a big afternoon tea before question time. 
Hall is heated.All welcome!**
