Book News Annotation:

Scholars of history, literature, philosophy, and politics consider internal and external aspects of the work attributed to Mengzi (371-290 BC), the second sage of Confucianism, just after the master himself. Their topics include a hermeneutic interpretation by Zhu Xi, Kaibara Ekiken and ethics from a cross-cultural perspective, the Mencius in the writings of Hu Shi, and contemporary studies of Mencius in Taiwan. The 13 essays are from a June 2005 conference in Karlsruhe, Germany that drew attendants from Taiwan, Japan, and Europe. They are not indexed. The price is 68 euros.

Synopsis:

The Mencius, attributed to the philosopher Mengzi (Lat. Mencius, ca. 370-290 BC), the second Sage of the Confucian school after its founder, is one of the most prominent of all Chinese classics, with a great impact on the historical development of Confucianism. Today, it serves as one of the determinants for positioning Confucianism in the modern world, and it is the most discussed Chinese philosophical text in the context of the search for universally valid ethical norms and democracy. The essays collected in this volume by scholars from Taiwan, Japan and Germany focus on various aspect of the reception of the work in East Asia from the Song-Dynasty to the present day. They call into mind the signifance of a thinker who according to Albert Schweitzer is the most modern one of all thinkers of antiquity.
