Confucius by Jonathan Clements

Book Description

He was equally proud of both achievements, saying that if the evil people of the world liked him, he was doing something wrong. Confucius established many ideas that are taken for granted today. His theories became the foundation of one of the world's first civil services and established enduring social structures throughout Asia. In collating and refining the words of earlier, forgotten thinkers, he also preserved elements of China's prehistoric culture, and its ancient religion of ancestor-worship.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Born the illegitimate son of a soldier and a concubine, Confucius became a towering figure in Chinese history, famous not only for his teachings but also for his uncompromising politics and his collation of hundreds of years of Chinese thought. In this entertaining biography, Jonathan Clements reveals the man behind the legend, as well as providing a useful introduction to Confucius' thoughts and teachings. This book will fascinate anyone interested in Eastern philosophy, as well as anyone who wants to learn more about Chinese culture and politics. But above all this is an inspiring book about the life of a thoughtful and brave man. (Kirkus UK)
