Thanks to the positive impacts brought by the show “Hồn Trương Ba da hàng thịt” (“Truong Ba's Soul in the Butcher's body”), together with its increasing numbers of performances and showing hours on domestic and international stages, the play has attracted increasing reviews from researchers and literary critics. Upon discussing the established criticism and opinions, the author shares his own approach of understanding the play. Investigating Luu Quang Vu’s philosophical argumentation and creativity, this article focuses on problem detection capability – Truong Ba Soul’s personal tragedies - and the advantages of the drama language; the transition from folk philosophy to Luu Quang Vu’s; Luu Quang Vu’s psychoanalytic perspectives on the harmony of the “Id" - "the “Ego” - "the SuperEgo” coexisting in Truong Ba’s Soul; the concept of humans in multifaceted relationships and the reflections that helped Truong Ba's Soul resolve his tragedies.
