Tsai's expressive drawings bring Confucius and his students to life as no other edition of the Analects does. See Confucius engage his students over the question of how to become a leader worth following in a society of high culture, upward mobility, and vicious warfare. Which virtues should be cultivated, what makes for a harmonious society, and what are the important things in life? Unconcerned with religious belief but a staunch advocate of tradition, Confucius emphasizes the power of society to create sensitive, respectful, and moral individuals. In many ways, Confucius speaks directly to modern concerns--about how we can value those around us, educate the next generation, and create a world in which people are motivated to do the right thing. A marvelous introduction to a timeless classic, this book also features an illuminating foreword by Michael Puett, coauthor of The Path: What Chinese Philosophers Can Teach Us about the Good Life. In addition, Confucius's original Chinese text is artfully presented in narrow sidebars on each page, enriching the books for readers and students of Chinese without distracting from the self-contained English-language cartoons. The text is skillfully translated by Brian Bruya, who also provides an introduction.

    To the Western mind, Confucius can seem a little mysterious. His precepts are admirably clear, but the focus on duty and hierarchy doesn't play as well in our individualistic society as it does elsewhere. Curiously, the pandemic we're experiencing now offers a test case that supports Confucian thinking powerfully. One of his insights was that the order of the country is maintained up and down the leadership ladder with right thinking and behavior. The opposite leads to disorder and chaos. In 202 To the Western mind, Confucius can seem a little mysterious. His precepts are admirably clear, but the focus on duty and hierarchy doesn't play as well in our individualistic society as it does elsewhere. Curiously, the pandemic we're experiencing now offers a test case that supports Confucian thinking powerfully. One of his insights was that the order of the country is maintained up and down the leadership ladder with right thinking and behavior. The opposite leads to disorder and chaos. In 2020, the lack of a coherent national response to the pandemic creates problems up and down the political and social levels of our society because there is no coordination of action and the virus is not limited to counties or cities or states. Time to go back to Confucius and re-learn an ancient classic. C. C. Tsai's version is fun and accessible, and includes a biography of the sage which is very helpful in understanding the chaotic times that he lived.
