The Analects of Confucius (Illustrated Edition)
When asked to name the first influential philosopher who ever lived, many might initially think of Socrates, who mentored Plato all the way back around the end of the 5th century A.D. Indeed, the Ancient Greek philosophers are often among the most remembered and quoted philosophers even today, with Aristotle, Plato, and Socrates all being household names. However, nearly 100 years before Socrates lived, and thousands of miles away, Confucius (circa 551-480 B.C.) developed a philosophy that carries the name Confucianism and remains relevant in Asia today. The philosophy of Confucius emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity, all universal values that people have strived for in government and society for the 2500 years after his life. This edition of the Analects of Confucius is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures and depictions of Confucius and Ancient China.
