Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fullest of the four great Confucian texts, Mencius draws out the implications of the master's moral principles stressing the importance of individual conscience and the necessity for morality in personal and public life.

Synopsis:

The Confucian philosopher, Mencius (c.371-288 BC) explicated his master's moral principles and reinterpreted them for the harsh conditions of the 4th century BC. With its stress on the "thinking heart" (or individual conscience), "Mencius" is a defence of morality in private and public life.

Taylor, March 4, 2009 (view all comments by Taylor)
I found Mencius to be an excellent book, which clarified and drew out a lot of the Confucianist principles found in the analects, with much lengthier explanations offered. In particular Mencius's focus on the Heart and also changing your vices into virtues by sharing them with other people is fascinating because it illustrates a different perspective on how to approach the world, while simultaneously advocating a humanistic approach, sorely needed in our current time. It's wroth revisiting this great classic, both as a way to evaluate our practices, and also to remind us that ultimately we need to value an approach that is humanistic as opposed to materialistic.
