"This is the Confucius translation for our time". -- Jonathan Mirsky, The Times (London)

In this terse, brilliant translation, Simon Leys restores the human dimension to Confucius. He emerges a full-blooded character with a passion for politics and a devotion to the ideals of a civilization he saw in decline. Leys's Notes draw Confucius into conversation with the great thinkers of the Western tradition. In all, this volume provides new readers the perfect introduction to a classic work.
-- "A fresh and marvelously lucid glimpse of the Confucian mind". -- Orville Schell
