The analects (Lun yü) by Confucius( Book )

56 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,412 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
Tao te ching by Laozi( Book )

84 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,333 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 )

12 editions published between 1970 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 674 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
Yuan Dao : tracing Dao to its source( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 353 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 : the art of warfare by Bin Sun( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and Chinese and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lost for some 2,000 years and rediscovered only by chance in 1972, Sun Pin: The Art of Warfare is now recognized as one of the essential texts of classical Chinese military philosophy. In this new edition, D. C. Lau and Roger T. Amers, eminent scholars of Chinese philosophy and widely respected translators, offer a comprehensive translation of the Sun Pin texts, along with extensive notes and commentary. The publication of this volume returns the work of one of the great military innovators to the canon of Chinese literature. Sun Pin essentially a philosopher of the battlefield, ponders such key concepts as the exemplary ruler, the importance of strategy and morale, and the advantages to be gained from adaptability, display, and discretion. Yet these texts are also clearly intended to be practical and to be used to maximum effect on the battlefield. As Sun Pin writes, "for one who has really mastered the way of warfare, his enemy can do nothing to escape death." This new edition of Sun Pin: The Art of Warfare includes not only the sixteen chapters and fragments of the main text recovered at Yin-ch'ueh-shan in 1972, but also fifteen supplementary chapters and three extracts from the encyclopedic tradition
Sun Bin : the art of warfare : a translation of the classic Chinese work of philosophy and strategy by Bin Sun( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 204 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 )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 196 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

Tao te ching by Laozi( Book )

3 editions published between 1963 and 2001 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a completely fresh and poetic version of the twenty-five-hundred-year-old Chinese spiritual classic, by one of America's most thought-provoking writers. Moved by a lifelong love for the Tao Te Ching, the novelist and poet Ursula K. Le Guin has been working on this version of the text since the 1950s. Scholar J.P. Seaton has added expert linguistic guidance to her work, bringing to it an equally passionate commitment to scholarly accuracy. Together they have created a translation that is unlike any seen before. Le Guin's version captures all the brilliance of Lao Tzu's poetry while conveying with immediacy and clarity the astonishing depth of his spiritual insights. It also corrects many of the distorted views of Lao Tzu's philosophy, freeing it from gender-bias and revealing its universal relevance. This new version is sure to be welcomed by the many readers of the Tao Te Ching, as well as those coming to the text for the first time
