Synopsis:

The moral and social philosophy of Confucius is an intrinsic element of the Chinese national character. This volume contains three renowned works translated by Gu Hongming: The Method of Higher Education: A New Translation, The Universal Order or Conduct of Life, and The Discourses and Sayings of Confucius (The Analects). Hongming, a renowned scholar of Confucius, sought to help the West better understand China through these works. His original texts of Confucius's thoughts are collected here, and through them, the reader will come to a better understanding of both ancient and modern China.

About the Author

Born in Malaysia in 1857 to a Chinese father and Portuguese mother, Gu Hongming studied in Scotland. He received an M.A. in Literature from the University of Edinburgh, a diploma in Civil Engineering at the University of Leipzig, and studied law in Paris. Returning to Malaysia in 1880, he joined the colonial Singapore civil service and eventually went to China where he held many ranking positions in the Imperial government. Throughout his career, he wrote many essays and books about Confucius, primarily in English. By the end of his life in 1928 he was renowned as an interpreter of China and the Chinese people to the West.

Dr. Jinli He, Ph.D. is Assistant Professor of Modern Languages and Literatures at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. She received her Ph.D. from the Department of Chinese Language and Literature at Peking University.
