ABSTRACT
The article examines the features of friendship in the book "Zhuangi" and its significance for adequate appreciation of dao living. It is expressed that friendship has formal features similar to the formal features in the Confucian-Mencian characterization of friendship. The features could have substantive differences based on embodiment, heart-mind sensibilities, interpersonal, cosmic and ontological characteristics. Furthermore, friendship is a natural part of adept living that requires cultivation of a way of life in accordance with it.
