The Wisdom of Confucius by Lin, Yutang
Provides helpful insights for modern readers from the classic teachings of the great Chinese philosopher. Confucius espoused a philosophy at once practical & moral, eternal & conservative, & always deeply grounded in the truths of human character. His reflections on government, family life & marriage, wealth & poverty, goodness & evil are as fresh, incisive, & relevant today as they were two thousand years ago. It is a reissue of the classic 1900 English translation of The Wisdom of Confucius. The collection reflects on subjects ranging from good government to filial piety, philanthropy, human instinct & habit, history, & warfare. --This text refers to an alternate hardcover edition.
