This is the first complete, one-volume English translation of the ancient Chinese text Xunzi, one of the most extensive, sophisticated, and elegant works in the tradition of Confucian thought. Through essays, poetry, dialogues, and anecdotes, the Xunzi articulates a Confucian perspective on ethics, politics, warfare, language, psychology, human nature, ritual, and music, among other topics. Aimed at general readers and students of Chinese thought, Eric Hutton's translation makes the full text of this important work more accessible in English than ever before. Named for its purported author, the Xunzi (literally, "Master Xun") has long been neglected compared to works such as the Analects of Confucius and the Mencius. Yet interest in the Xunzi has grown in recent decades, and the text presents a much more systematic vision of the Confucian ideal than the fragmented sayings of Confucius and Mencius. In one famous, explicit contrast to them, the Xunzi argues that human nature is bad. However, it also allows that people can become good through rituals and institutions established by earlier sages. Indeed, the main purpose of the Xunzi is to urge people to become as good as possible, both for their own sakes and for the sake of peace and order in the world

"Xunzi (c. 312 B.C.-?) asserted that the original nature of man is evil, thus differing from Mencius, his famous predecessor in the Confucian school. However, Xunzi was optimistic that man's evil could be counteracted through study and moral training led by the example of virtuous rulers. Although he respected the military and economic accomplishments of the state of Qin, he condemned the harsh and terroristic methods that would later be championed by his student Han Feizi." "The Xunzi is written with a precision and elegance that was unrivaled in the ancient period, and was the most complete, well-ordered philosophical system of his day. Today's reader will find its ideas on leadership, education, and moral training surprisingly close to concerns of our own age."--Jacket
