The Analects of Confucius
by Confucius, translated by J. Legge
Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2004
No other book in the entire history of the world has exerted a greater influence on a larger number of people over a longer period of time than this volume. The spiritual cornerstone of the most populous and oldest living civilization on Earth, the Analects has inspired the Chinese and all the peoples of East Asia with its affirmation of a humanist ethics. The Analects is the only place where we can encounter the real, living Confucius. He speaks with clarity and brilliance. He emerges as a man of great passion and many enthusiasms, a man of bold action whose true vocation is politics.
