This is a short study of how the notion of thinking that Heidegger developed in his writing, in the Conversation on a Country Path about Thinking (2010a), can be read through a consideration of a Chinese Taoist text Tao Te Ching (Laozi) and the Confucian, though a Taoist inspired text, by Zisi, the Zhongyong, to illuminate the essential nature of openness in transdisciplinarity and the restrictions of disciplinarity of knowing taken as the ritual and rules of methodology. This approach offers a way to understand unconcealment in the onto-cosmology of the harmony of all Being and of personal cultivation which is essential to the ontology of Heidegger. I then suggest how this might be offered in what could be called a transdisciplinary pedagogy.
