This spectacular collection contains the key writings of Confucius, Mencius and Faxian, superbly translated by three leading scholars of China in the West. This anthology of Chinese literature was first published at the turn of the 20th century, and is intended as an superb introduction to the facets of wisdom and thought which emerged from the country in ancient times. The writings within retain their timeless nature, and together form an excellent representation of the intellectual development which attained prominence in Ancient China - the Confucian philosophy expressed continues to influence Chinese and Asian cultures in the modern day. The Analects of Confucius is a pivotal work of Confucianism which contains many of the philosophic ideas and jewels of wisdom for which its author is renowned. The Sayings of Mencius comprises of several dialogues held between the Confucian philosopher and various students, nobles and contemporaries of the era. The Travels of Fa-Hien (Faxian) is an early travelogue which chronicles the author's journeys far beyond the farthest extent of Chinese civilisation. Faxian was a Buddhist monk intrigued by the origins of his religion - through his travels he encountered Indian, Nepalese and other peoples, and the stunning temple of the Indian king Ashoka. To this day, Faxian's writings remain an important source for scholars of Asian antiquity. The Sorrows of Han is one of the earliest tragic plays produced for the stage in Ancient China. Although but a small part of the Chinese dramatic library, the play is representative of the performances which would be staged often on temporary stages erected in the bustling marketplaces as a form of public entertainment. While the Chinese placed less importance on drama than the Greeks, it was popular and reflective of the national character."

The Analects (The Revised James Legge Translation)

This carefully crafted ebook: “Classic The Analects (The Revised James Legge Translation)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. This book is the revised James Legge translation which has been extensively reworked and restored compared to the freely available Legge translations. The Analects, also known as the Analects of Confucius, is the collection of sayings and ideas attributed to the Chinese philosopher Confucius and his contemporaries, traditionally believed to have been written by Confucius' followers. It is believed to have been written during the Warring States period (475 BC–221 BC), and it achieved its final form during the mid-Han dynasty (206 BC–220 AD). By the early Han dynasty the Analects was considered merely a "commentary" on the Five Classics, but the status of the Analects grew to be one of the central texts of Confucianism by the end of that dynasty. During the late Song dynasty (960-1279) the importance of the Analects as a philosophy work was raised above that of the older Five Classics, and it was recognized as one of the "Four Books". The Analects has been one of the most widely read and studied books in China for the last 2,000 years, and continues to have a substantial influence on Chinese and East Asian thought and values today. Confucius (551–479 BC) was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history.

The Sayings of Confucius. Translated by Leonard A. Lyall. Confucius was born in the year 550 b.c., in the land of Lu, in a small village, situated in the western part of the modern province of Shantung. His name was K'ung Ch'iu, and his style (corresponding to our Christian name) was Chung-ni. His countrymen speak of him as K'ung Fu-tzu, the Master, or philosopher K'ung. This expression was altered into Confucius by the Jesuit missionaries who first carried his fame to Europe. Since the golden days of the Emperors Yao and Shun, the legendary founders of the Chinese Empire, nearly two thousand years had passed. Shun chose as his successor Yu, who had been his chief minister, a man whose devotion to duty was such that when engaged in draining the empire of the great flood-a task that took eight years to accomplish-he never entered his home till the work was done, although in the course of his labours he had thrice to pass his door.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1915 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER II SELF-DEVELOPMENT The characteristics of the superior man having been presented, it is in logical order to examine the facilities and qualities which Confucius would have one cultivate to attain this ideal state. First in importance is the will. The Will. "Their purposes being rectified, they cultivated themselves." By these words in "The Great Learning" (Text, v. 5) it is meant that when there is no conflict of aims, of duties and desires, when one wills what he wishes, and with all his heart singly and clearly wishes what he wills, then and not till then does the will become clear and firm and strong. The man is his will; back of his will is his purpose; and back of his purpose, his desire. If his knowledge enable him to make right choices, he should be sincere, his desires should be disciplined, his purpose lofty, and, resting thereupon as on a rock, his will fixed and immovable. That is character. Confucius puts it: "If the will be set on virtue, 48 there will be no practice of wickedness." (Analects, bk. iv., c. iv.) True; for when the will rests upon set purpose, based upon purified desire, born of knowledge and discriminating investigation of phenomena, nothing can undermine it! This rectification of the antecedent conditions is what the sage refers to when he says: " To subdue one's self and return to propriety is perfect virtue" (Analects, bk. xii., c. 1), and again: "The firm, the enduring, the simple, and the unpretentious are near to virtue." (Analects, bk. xiii., c. xxvii.) That the will is proved by its resistance rather than its impelling force, Mencius says in this: "Men must be resolute about what they will not do and then they are able to act with vigor." (Bk. iv., pt. ii., c. viii.) The same is meant, i. e., ...
