No explanation has ever been offered or demanded for the admiration the Chinese have had for hermits. Hermits were simply there: beyond city walls, in the mountains, lone columns of smoke after a snowfall. As far back as records go, there were always hermits in China.
A beautifully written introduction to the (living!) tradition of Chinese hermitism: from its pre-Daoist roots to contemporary Chungnan Shan.
