Description

Documents the political life and intellectual development of the influential moral thinker, drawing on top-credited Chinese texts to separate historical from popularized facts to offer insight into Confucius's daily life, belief systems, and relationships with his contemporaries. 25,000 first printing.

"This is a passionate biography of a man who, as Annping Chin puts it, strove ´to keep the idea of the moral within human reach.´ It is a fascinating attempt to recover the actual historical figure who did so much to shape one of the world´s great civilizations; but it is also a gripping portrait of that rare person who both faced up to ´human form and fate´ -- and lovingly embraced what he saw." -- Jonathan Lear, Committee on Social Thought, The University of Chicago

"The Authentic Confucius," a culmination of years of research, is a masterful account of the political life and intellectual development of the moral thinker who has remained a powerful force in China up to the present day.

Résumé
For more than two thousand years, Confucius has been an inseparable part of China´s history. Yet despite this fame,Confucius the man has been elusive. Now, in The Authentic Confucius, Annping Chin has worked through the most reliable Chinese texts in her quest to sort out what is really known about Confucius from the reconstructions and the guesswork that muddled his memory.

Chin skillfully illuminates the political and social climate in which Confucius lived. She explains how Confucius made the transition from court advisor to wanderer, and how he reluctantly became a professional teacher as he refined his judgment of human character and composed his vision of a moral political order. The result is an absorbing and original book that shows how Confucius lived and thought: his habits and inclinations, his relation to the people of the time, his work as a teacher and as a counselor, his worries about the world and the generations to come.

In this book, Chin brings the historical Confucius within our reach, so that he can lead us into his idea of the moral and to his teachings on family and politics, culture and learning. The Authentic Confucius is a masterful account of the life and intellectual development of a thinker whose presence remains a powerful force today.
