__Chapter 2 (838-45)__
- 3. On 838-41, Chuang Chou addresses the basic philosophical problem of self-consciousness (i.e. our awareness of ourselves as thinking beings, as mind-body units, etc. ââ¬â€œ our ability to "get a handle" on what we are). What view does he advance concerning the possibility of grasping ourselves this way?

4. On 839-43, Chuang Chou analyzes the "categories" of thought humans (especially philosophers and logicians) employ. Why, according to him, do they use such categories as "this" and "that," and what error does the use of them involve? What are the consequences of the error?

__Chapters 17-22, 24 (853-58)__
- 10. On 851-55 (Chs. 17-19) describe human attempts to understand other not only the consciousness of other beings, but also the state of nonbeing and the supernatural realm of ghosts. How successful are these attempts, in your view – is Master Chuang (i.e. Chuang Tzu) right in doggedly claiming he knows what fish enjoy? Does he learn anything from the skull he contemplates? What does the Invocator learn about the difference between himself and a pig? And finally, what helps Duke Huan get over his melancholy fear of a ghost?

11. On 855-56 (Ch. 20), Chuang Chou is stricken with unhappiness when he runs into a chain of predatory acts, which include his own stalking of a magpie. What is it that has made him so unhappy? How do you interpret his statement that he "forgot his body" and the magpie "forgot its true self"?
