Wayne L. Wang was born in Taiwan and migrated to the U.S. for his graduate studies in engineering and physics. In 1971, Dr. Wang received his Ph. D. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He did research as a theoretical physicist until 1975, publishing numerous papers on nuclear reaction theory. After spending five years on nuclear reactor safety research, he became a telecommunication engineer specializing in advanced mobile telecommunication systems and data communication.

His cultural background spans equally both the Eastern and Western worlds. The similarities between Tao and quantum physics have attracted his early interest on Tao Philosophy. He believes that Tao is coherent and dynamic, and it may be systematically represented a modern theory. With his background in the Chinese language and modern physics, he has been able to formulate a Tao philosophy in a most coherent and consistent manner. He introduces a scientific process to formulate Tao Philosophy in a language independent fashion. He has successfully translated the most difficult Chinese classic, the Lao-tzu Tao Te Ching, with minimum ambiguity.

His first book on this subject, Dynamic Tao and Its Manifestations, shows the intimate similarities between Tao Philosophy and Quantum Cosmology. His analysis of Tao Philosophy will set a new framework for modern Tao studies, in both the Eastern and the Western arenas. The project took more than four and half years to complete.

王文隆博士,1944年生於台灣宜蘭市聖後街。宜蘭中學初中、台北工專機械科畢業。1971年美國麻省理工學院核子工程博士。卡內基美濃 (Carnegie-Mellon) 大學、勞倫斯柏克萊 (Lawrence Berkeley) 國家實驗室、阿崗 (Argonne) 國家實驗室核子工程、貝爾實驗室 (Bell Labs) 電訊工業。2010年退休後,主要工作為寫作及美術。自2000年開始獨立研究道家哲學,他會對道家哲學發生興趣,是因為他發現《道德經》一直被視做神祕哲學,但卻和科學現象有相通之處。2004年,他將最初的分析報告出版為《動態的道與其顯象》一書,此後他致力於釐清道家哲學的法則。經過廣泛地比較古今中外的各種哲學,終於演繹出道家哲學的邏輯模型。

2006年他發表《道家哲學的基本理論》,提出一個能反映「道」的太極關係的初期科學模型。2012年完整的邏輯結構出刊印於淡江人文學刊〈道家哲學的邏輯〉。2013 年完整的模型與其應用法則分別出版為兩本書︰《道家哲學的邏輯》(The Logic of Tao Philosophy) 與《道德經》的英譯本(Tao Te Ching: An Ultimate Translation)。2014年時,他利用道家哲學的邏輯並融合心理學、宗教與西方哲學出版了首部中文書《尋求人生的意義》。2015年他重新修定《道家哲學的邏輯》並由呂應棠先生翻譯成中文,而出版英漢對照版。這些是尋找道家哲學精髓的里程碑。道的基本邏輯類似古希臘哲學及佛家哲學,這邏輯的應用能合理詮釋《道德經》困難的詞句。

他分析東西哲學後主張:「傳統高舉老子思想為超越其他哲學思想,是基於對老子《道德經》的誤解。老子的真正基本邏輯和古希臘哲學及佛家哲學並無兩樣。」最重要的是:道家哲學並不那麼神秘。

作者擁有麻省理工學院的博士學位,目前住在美國伊利諾州芝加哥。曾任芝加哥台灣同鄉會會長及理事,芝加哥台灣文化促進會、美麗島文化社與北美台灣人教授會會員,以及北美台灣人工程學會伊利諾會長。現任FAPA會員、芝加哥「胡塗畫會」會員、台美人筆會會友、台美人歷史。業餘興趣為中西哲學研究、繪畫、寫作。

    Dear Prof. Wayne,
    My name is Stefano and I’m a graduating student of human science in Italy, I do not know how thank you for your researches about Tao Philosphy. I have bought the three books that you have published, I have been studying them deeply during these days.
    I was very astonished when I have discovered by your writings the inner structure of the Tao, originally meant by Lao Tzu. The most surprising thing in this event is that, here in Europe also the paradigm by which Plato’s writings had been studied for two millenia was changed.
    It is same paradigm shift that you have indicated by which, we can understand the reality of the One. With this new epistemological approach we can say that Idea of Good, originally meant by Plato, has a dynamic structure which is one and many at the same time: he used the words One, Beeing and Diversity in his famous writing Parmenide.
    The corrispondences are the same, the Beeing is Tao, the One is Hang Wu and the diversity is the Hang Yo.
    It is very impressing that two philosophers that lived in different places of the world, almost at the same time, gained the same result in understanding the structure of reality. And of course, there are references about the polar activity of this Reality as the One and the Diadic principle, as Yin and Yang.
    I really appreciate your works and I hope to study more about it, and why not to follow the Tao Way (it seems like a tautology).

    Greetings from Turin (Italy),
    Stefano

      Stefano,

      It is great that you are looking into my books.
      The most important one is “The Logic of Tao Philosophy.” I am pretty confident on the interpretation.
      So far very few people have understood it.
      I am in the process of making it clearer in the interpretation and writing (that can be improved greatly).
      My most recent work is now in Chinese “Searching for the Meaning of Life” within the same principle oneness.
      I am also trying to build slowly a newer website (www.dynamictao.wordpress.com) .

      Your comments will help me making it understood better.
      Please feel free to write email to me (wayne.wang@comcast.net)

      Wayne
