产品描述

For thousands of years Emperors ruled China according to Confucian precepts. The Communist Party too, after decrying the influence of Confucian thought for most of the 20th century, now embraces Confucianism. Many also credit Confucian ideals with helping spur the incredible economic growth seen in China over the past several decades.

Nevertheless, many in the West remain largely ignorant of this philosopher and his ideas. In large part this is because books that take Confucius as their main subject are few and far between, while texts that address China more broadly, whether intended for casual readers or university students, can only devote a limited number of pages to Chinese philosophy.

Confucius: Eternal Sage remedies this problem by offering a serious academic overview of Confucianism’s historical development, ideological framework and relevance to the world today. The book is ideal for a high school or college course on Chinese culture and history, but is also an excellent resource for personal study. It contains an English language translation in addition to the original Chinese version of the Analects, the central Confucian text, for easy reference.
