Da Xue 大学 (The Great Learning) and Zhong Yong 中庸 (The Doctrine of the Mean) were originally in Li Ji 礼记 (The Record of Rites). It was Zhu Xi 朱熹 the famous Song dynasty compiler and commentator who had taken both Da Xue and Zhong Yong out of the Li Ji and put them together with Lun Yu (The Analects) and Mencius 孟子 to form the Four Books 四书 of the Confucian Classics. The Four Books, along with the Five Classics 五经, were adopted as the core curriculum for the imperial examination in the Ming and Qing dynasties. The Doctrine of the Mean places special emphasis on sincere intentions and personal integrity. The completely sincere person can even stand together with Heaven and Earth to support and uphold all things. This version of The Doctrine of the Mean is delightful and easy to grasp: * Features bilingual presentation of the classic text * Contains charming cartoon illustrations * Presents 30 relevant stories from China抯 rich history.
