In the paper, I reconstruct the philosophical practice of Lin Yutang and argue that his thought can be interpreted as a philosophy of the art of life. I point out that the essence of Lin’s philosophical practice is the art of writing. Similarly to other philosophers of the art of life, Lin is both an artist and philosopher. Therefore, he himself is the central theme of his essays. In his performative art, Lin constructs his “self” and shapes the model of philosophical life deeply rooted in the tradition of Chinese leisure culture. The model of everyday life proposed by Lin is, thus, meant to inspire the reader.
