Description: Confucius has become synonymous in the West with the image of Eastern wisdom: profound, cryptic, mysterious. In fact, he is one of the most humane, lucid, and rational moral teachers of the ancient world, concerned not with arcane metaphysics or invisible gods, but with practical issues of life and conduct. How should the state be organized? What makes a good ruler? What is virtue? What is the proper relationship between Man and Nature? Above all, how should individuals behave to one another and to their environment?

Confucius addresses all these questions in dialogues, stories, and anecdotes, bearing in mind that the state exists for the people, not the people for the state. He offers not lofty moral prescriptions, but sensible advice based on principles of justice and moderation. It is for this reason that even now, after two and a half thousand years, he remains one of the most influential sages in human history.
