Book Description Hunan People's Publication House, 2006. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. Language : Chinese ¿English ;611 pages Mozi was a collection of works and sayings by the distinguished thinker and politician Mozi (cir. 468 B.C.--376 B.C.) and his disciples. The original book contained 71 chapters, yet they were gradually scattered after the Six Dynasties (220-589). As a result, only 53 chapters are still in existence. Mozi covers a wide range of subjects, including politics, military science, philosophy, ethics, economy, logic, natural science and technology, and is the chief representative work of Mohism. Altogether ten propositions are put forward in Mozi: "Universal Love", "Denouncing Aggressive Warfare", "Respecting the Virtuous", "Identifying with the Superior", "Economizing Expenditures", "Simplicity in Funerals", "Against Music", "The Will of Heaven", "On Ghosts", "Against Fatalism". The present book is based on Mozi Re-annotated by Sun Yirang and dozens of editions and Chinese versions of Mozi. It it the first complete English translation of the works of Mozi. Mohism, an ancient Chinese thought school springs from the teachings of Mo Di (Mo-Ti), or Mozi (Mo-Tsu, "Master Mo"), about whom little is known, not even what state he was from. The Shi Ji, a Han dynasty record, tells us only that he was an official of the state of Song and that he lived either at the same time as or after Confucius (d. 479 B.C.), with whom he is often paired by Qin (221-206 B.C.) and Han dynasty (206 B.C.-219 A.D.) texts as the two great moral teachers of the Warring States era. Most likely, he flourished during the middle to late decades of the 5th century B.C., roughly contemporaneous with Socrates in the West. ¿o?is an unusual surname and the common Chinese word for "ink." Hence scholars have speculated that this was not Mozi's original family name, but an epithet given him because he was once a slave or convict, whose faces were often branded or tattooed with dark ink.
