Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Sun Tzu on the Art of War: The Oldest Military Treatise in the World; Translated From the Chinese With Introduction, and Critical Notes The seventh volume of Memoires concernant l histoire, les sciences, les arts, les moeurs, les usages, c., des Chinois is devoted to the Art of War, and contains, amongst other treatises, Les Treize Articles de Sun-tse, translated from the Chinese by a Jesuit Father, Joseph Amiot. Pere Amiot appears to have enjoyed no small reputation as a sinologue in his day, and the Held of his labours was certainly extensive. But his so-called translation of Sun Tzu, if placed side by side with the original, is seen at once to be little better than an imposture. It contains a great deal that Sun Tzu did not write, and very little indeed of what he did. Here is a fair specimen, taken from the opening sentences of chapter 5: - De l habiete dans Ze gouvernemet des Troupes. Sun-tse dit: Ayez les noms de tousles Ofliciers tant generaux que subalternes; inscrivez-les dans un catalogue a part, avec la note des talents de la capacite de chacun d eux, afin de pouvoir les employer avec avantage lorsque l occasion en sera venue. Faites en sorte que tous ceux que vous devez commander soient persuades que votre principale attention est de les preserver de tout dommage. Les troupes que vous ferez avancer contre l ennemi doivent etre comme des pierres que vous lanceriez contre des oeufs. De vous a l ennemi il ne doit y avoir d autre difference que celle du fort au foible, du vuide au plein. Attaquez a decouvert, mais soyez vainqueur en secret. Voila en peu de mots en quoi consiste 1 habilete toute la perfection meme du gouvernement des troupes. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
