4 First, there is the lore of taijiquan itself—the creation myths, legends, tales of power, and multivocal histories that help constitute taijiquan as “tradition” in the minds of many practitioners. The monthly meeting I introduced above is an arena for reading such taijiquan lore. Second is the lore of Daoism that has come to be associated with taijiquan. While I am particularly 26 Taijiquan and The Search for The Little Old Chinese Man interested here in the discursive space that the discipline of EuroAmerican Daoist studies has staked out over the last several hundred years and how that discipline has influenced modern conceptions of taijiquan outside China, I also call attention to the way modernist, urban interpretations of Daoism have kept taijiquan teetering between heterodoxy and orthodoxy over the last century.

In addition to his neidan work, Edkins undertook studies on the Yijing (I Ching), and Ernst Eitel produced papers on feng shui (geomancy) (Girardot 1987; see also Wong 1996). The Scottish Congregationalist James Legge’s involvement in the term question led to his eventual disillusionment with the missionary world, and he subsequently turned to a primarily scholarly life. At the turn of the century and well into the twentieth century, French scholars dominated the Sinological tradition. Édouard Chavannes (1865–1918), Marcel Granet (1884–1940), and Henri Maspero (1883–1945) combined textual scholarship with anthropological theory and fieldwork (Girardot 1987).

In the first, Zhang heard a commotion outside his door one day, only to discover a magpie (or crane, according to some versions) attacking a snake. Each time the magpie attacked, the snake evaded by moving slightly, while maintaining its circular shape.
