LAO TSETao Te Ching
The Last but not Least Translation by
Daniel Medvedov
Madrid2010
 
ForewordI lived with the
Tao Te Ching 
some thirty years, day by day. Erudition does not allows you to understand whatare you translating from an ancient tongue. Onlycontemplation may gather for you some trends, somefathomable insights. So, this is the
last 
translation of thetext [Wang Pi text] but not the
least 
.I would like to show here my deep regards for myfriend William Scott Wilson, himself a translator of 
TaoTe Ching 
. With Justin Newman, we found together sometracks of the philosopher way in Kyoto, and take it withus, returning at our homes, at our housewives, at our children, washing dishes and preparing a breakfast.
