Tao te ching by Laozi( Book )

76 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,418 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

Yuan Dao : tracing Dao to its source( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 357 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

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.

Sun Bin : the art of warfare : a translation of the classic Chinese work of philosophy and strategy by Bin Sun( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sun Bin, advisor to King Wei of the state of Qi, worked and wrote during the mid-fourth century B.C.E. during China's Warring States period. It was a time of unprecedented violence; without a central national authority, nation-states fought fiercely amongst one another. New technologies made fighting more deadly, so that between the mid-fourth and mid-third centuries B.C.E., the number of battlefield casualties increased tenfold. Sun Bin's work is the key to understanding the physical and intellectual revolution that made such "progress" in the efficiency of warfare possible." "The Art of Warfare shows Sun Bin as both practical tactician and philosopher. He discusses war and rulership not only as philosophical concepts, but also as practical matters, evidenced by his battle-tested techniques. This is a fascinating book both for its reflection on its own time and for its reflection on power, conflict, and leadership for all times."--Jacket
Mencius by Mencius( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mencius was one of the great philosophers of ancient China, second only in influence to Confucius, whose teachings he defended and expanded. The Mencius, in which he recounts his dialogues with kings, dukes and military men, as well as other philosophers, is one of the Four Books that make up the essential Confucian corpus. It takes up Confucius's theories of jen, or goodness, and yi, righteousness, explaining that the individual can achieve harmony with mankind and the universe by perfecting his innate moral nature and acting with benevolence and justice. Mencius's strikingly modern views on the duties of subjects and their rulers, or the evils of war, created a Confucian orthodoxy that has remained intact since the third century BCE."--Page 4 of cover
