Description:
This new translation makes the teachings of ancient Chinas second sage relevant for contemporary readers.. This ancient text records the teachings of Mencius, Chinas ya sheng , or second sage. A philosopher who worked in the fourth century b.c., Mencius studied with the grandson of Confucius and is credited with the development of orthodox Confucianism. Divided into seven chapters, Mencius is composed largely of conversations between the great philosopher and the rulers he sought to guide. Sometimes mystical, sometimes poetic, these teachings are often unpredictable, with startling insights that bring the narrative to life. David Hintons Mencius reveals for the first time the literary vibrancy of this great philosopher and the earnestness behind his faith in humanity. This ancient text records the teachings of Mencius (4th C. b.c.e.), the second originary sage in the Confucian tradition, which has shaped Chinese civilization for over two thousand years.
