  他這麼活過他的一生,留下一本書,《莊子》。這本書影響了陶淵明的一生,影響了李太白的一生,影響了白居易的一生,影響了蘇東坡的一生。唐玄宗下詔稱此書為《南華真經》,尊莊子為南華真人。清初名評論家金聖歎,評定這本書是「天下第一才子書」。

  才子必讀,欲成才者必讀。如果你醉心於技進於道、技道合一的職人文化,追本溯源,請讀《莊子》。如果你不想成材、不想在優勝劣敗的競走中疲憊一生,也請讀《莊子》。如果想處於才與不才之間、想在人生的驚濤駭浪間存活、無傷,更錬就日益精進的乘御之力,就請打開《莊子》。

 「福輕乎羽,莫之知載。禍重乎地,莫之知避。」(《莊子.人間世》)

  莊子所處的戰國時代,平民百姓能擁有的福份比羽毛還要輕薄,飄忽不定不知道要怎樣才能承接、擁有;可是災難禍患卻比山河大地還要沈重,想要閃避卻不知道有什麼方法能全身而退。當時,一次戰爭裡被斬首、殺害的士卒多達數萬、數十萬人。

  而莊子,就在這麼個布滿羅網、暗藏凶器的時代社會裏,擔任一個小小漆樹園的,小小吏。

  必須承受、最能感受時代之傷的,莫過於金字塔底層。
  是戰國中期的莊子,也是當代的你我。
  蕭條異代都同樣湧動著如風浪翻滾、層出不窮的普世之傷。

  與莊子為友,在李白之後、東坡之後,在詩人、哲人、職人與成千上萬因此改變姿勢、意識與用情的人們之後,本季課程將陪你逐字逐句讀完莊子親筆內七篇中的前三篇〈逍遙遊〉、〈齊物論〉、〈養生主〉,而莊周在此中斷續鋪陳、輻輳的三個主題:姿勢、意識與感情,也將在逐字逐句的講解中豁然胸次。──你會發現,原來只要把注意力收回自身,心就可以不煩、不亂、不痛。原來只要掌握正確的姿勢原則,身體竟可以如此輕靈放鬆。原來感情可以不執著、不陷溺,只要懂得深情而不滯於情。原來身心的安定,是面對混亂的時代最有力量的武器。

  時局板蕩,曖昧天光,半部《論語》治天下,半部《莊子》治身心,正是時候,好好讀《莊子》。

  為使聽者易於掌握《莊》學大旨,將〈逍遙遊〉、〈齊物論〉、〈養生主〉各分為三、五、五章,各章下依長度略分小節;並設計體驗古典單元,使能活用於日常。
