Tao te ching by Laozi ( Book )
76 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Lao Tzu is the principal classic in the thought of Taoism. Lao Tzu (whose name means 'Old Master') was an older contemporary of Confucius. Lao Tzu was a Chinese philosopher and founder of the Taoist religion in China. He worked as a librarian at the court of Chou. When the kingdom showed signs of decay, Lao Tzu left and was never heard of again. While traditionally ascribed to Lao Tzu, this work is more probably an anthology of wise sayings compiled in about the fourth century BC. As a treatise both on personal conduct and on government, it is moral rather than mystical in tone, and advances a philosophy of meekness as the surest path to survival
Mencius by Mencius ( Book )
33 editions published between 1970 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 1,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Mencius is the most beautifully written and perhaps the most authoritative of the Four Books that make up the essential Confucian corpus
The analects (Lun yü) by Confucius ( Book )
10 editions published between 1979 and 2003 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The classic collection of conversations and sayings by the ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius, containing his teachings on ethics, politics, and religion
Yuan Dao : tracing Dao to its source ( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Yuan Dao is a subversive document that challenged the autocratic aspirations of one of China's most powerful emperors. Its presentation set in motion a family tragedy in which the compiler, the most celebrated patron of literature of his age, fell victim to the expansionist politics of his uncle, the "Martial" emperor. Yuan Dao, complete here with English translation and critical Chinese text, is a remarkable distillation of earlier Daoist ideas found in the popular Daodejing (Tao Te Ching) and Shuangzi (Chuang-tzu) texts
The analects (Lun yü) by Confucius ( Book )
20 editions published between 1979 and 2000 in English and Chinese and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Confucius is the one thinker most influential and instrumental in informing the Chinese tradition. The Analects, which is a record of the words and teachings of Confucius, is considered the most reliable source of Confucius' teachings. However, as he was looked upon as the founder of the Confucius school, his thought tended to be approached through the eyes of the Confucianists of a later age, particularly the Neo-Confucianists of the Song dynasty. This inevitably results in distortion of the original meaning. In this translation by Professor D. C. Lau, an attempt has been made to interpret the sayings as they stand. The corpus of the sayings is taken as an organic whole and the final test of the interpretation rests on the internal consistency it exhibits. In other words, The Analects is read in the light of The Analects. It is hoped that this gives a truer understanding of Confucius' thought than the traditional interpretation and paves the way for a re-assessment of its importance in the history of Chinese thought and its relevance to the present day world. This volume also contains an introduction to the life and teachings of Confucius, and three appendices on the events in the life of Confucius, on his disciples, and on the composition of The Analects. Complete with both Chinese and English texts, this classic translation is an authoritative interpretation of Confucius' thought."--BOOK JACKET
Sun Pin : the art of warfare by Bin Sun ( Book )
4 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and Chinese and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sun Pin, som regnede sig som efterkommer af den kinesiske militærteoretiker Sun-tsu, var militær hovedrådgiver for Kong Wei af Ch'i i midten af det 4. århundrede f.Kr. På baggrund af sine erfaringer som troppefører og sin analyse af tidligere krigshistoriske eksempler har han beskrevet karakteren af, formålet med og principperne for krigsførelsen på den tid. Resultatet af denne militærvidenskabelige forskningsvirksomhed er samlet og oversat af bogens forfattere og fremstår som en række regler for troppeføreren såvel på det strategiske og taktiske plan som inden for førervirksomhed, troppernes moral og disciplin m.m. Principperne er i en række tilfælde belyst med eksempler. Bogen omfatter desuden sammenligninger mellem Sun Pin og Sun-tsu
Sun Bin : the art of warfare : a translation of the classic Chinese work of philosophy and strategy by Bin Sun ( Book )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sun Bin's Art of Warfare is an essential text of Chinese military philosophy and of strategy in general. This book, lost for over two thousand years and rediscovered only in 1972, has not yet reached the prominence of Sunzi's (Sun-tzu) The Art of Warfare, which is the best-known military treatise in the world. Sun Bin's work is an indispensable companion to the work of Sunzi, who is believed to be his ancestor, but deserves to be better known in its own right, both philosophically and historically. Here, noted sinologists D.C. Lau and Roger T. Ames offer an admirably lucid translation, and provide an introduction examining the life, times, and original philosophical contributions of Sun Bin."
