About

The existing translations of the Analects of Confucius are based upon a medieval interpretation which reflects the philosophy of the 12th century AD rather than of the 5th century BC, when Confucius died. The present book represents a first attempt to detach the Analects from the scholastic interpretation (rejected by native scholars since the 18th century) and to let these famous sayings speak for themselves.
