HBKU Press books win at the International Book Awards. 09 Aug - “These four books specifically were written with a distinct focus on the history, concepts, ideas, and values. The Analects encapsulate the philosophy of Confucius, one of the most revered thinkers of the ancient world. Espousing the ideals of wisdom, self-knowledge, courage, and love of one's fellow man, Confucius argued that the pursuit of virtue should be every individual's supreme goal.

Summary. The pieces in Book 5 are mostly the Master's reactions to individuals and specific situations, only some of which impart larger lessons. The first two chapters record the Master's approval of two men by marrying them to his close female relatives. More about these men may be recorded elsewhere, but lacking that, little of the philosophy can be gleaned from such passages.   The book begins with a chapter devoted to what is known of Confucius's life (–BC). The following chapters describe how his ideas grew in prominence after his death, how they have changed over time, and the effect they have had on civilization in East Asia/5(21).
