First published in 1938.

Previous translations of the Analects of Confucius are based upon a medieval interpretation which reflects the philosophy of the 12th century A.D rather than of the 5th century B.C., when Confucius lived. This book detaches the Analects from the Scholastic interpretation and lets these famous sayings speak for themselves.

About the Author:

Chinese teacher, political theorist, and philosopher, of the sixth century B.C. Confucius was one of the most distinguished figure whose ideas have had a great impact on the civilization of East Asia. He is renowned as the founder of Confucianism.

Review:

"Watson's translation is clear, crisp, terse, less predigested, and much more elegant than its contemporaries. This translation shall remain a standard for many years." -- Philip J. Ivanhoe, City University of Hong Kong

"[Watson's] translation... is not only perhaps the most faithful to the writer's intentions, but also one of the few readable ones." -- Donald Richie, "Japan Times"
