about this book

Here is a translation of the short sayings, proverbs, and observations on ethics and methods for living originated around 400 BC. Based on the earliest Analects yet discovered, this translation provides us with a new perspective on the central canonical text that has defined Chinese culture-and clearly illuminates the spirit and mind-set of Confucius. Based on the latest research and complete with both Chinese and English texts, this revealing translation serves both as an excellent introduction to Confucian thought and as an authoritative addition to sophisticated debate.
