Description

In this terse, brilliant translation, scholar Pierre Ryckmans (under the pseudonym Simon Leys) restores the human dimension to Confucius--who emerges as a full-blooded character with a passion for politics and a devotion to the ideals of a civilization he saw in decline. This volume provides new readers the perfect introduction to a classic work.
"This is the Confucius translation for our time". -- Jonathan Mirsky, The Times (London)

-- "A fresh and marvelously lucid glimpse of the Confucian mind". -- Orville Schell
