This comprehensive introduction explores the life and teachings of Confucius, and development of Confucian thought, from ancient times to the present today.

  • Demonstrates the wisdom and enduring relevance of Confucius’s teachings – drawing parallels between our 21st century society and that of China 2,500 years ago, where government corruption, along with social, economic, and technical changes, led thinkers to examine human nature and society

  • Draws on the latest research and incorporates interpretations of Confucius and his works by Chinese and Western scholars throughout the centuries

  • Explores how Confucius's followers expanded and reinterpreted his ideas after his death, and how this process has continued throughout Chinese history

  • Seamlessly links Confucius with our modern age, revealing how his teachings have  become the basis of East Asian culture and influenced the West

Keywords: Confucius, Zhou Dynasty, Mencius, Xunzi, Chinese Philosophy
