Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. Han Fei Tzu (280?-233BC) was a prince of the ruling house of the small state of Han. A representative of the "Fa-chia", or Legalist, school of philosophy, he produced the final and most readable exposition of its theories. Han Fei Tzu's handbook for the ruler, which includes a few chapters for the guidance of his ministers, deals with the problem of preserving and strengthening the state. He discusses the way of the ruler, standards, and the use of power, punishment and favour and specifies dangers to be avoided by the ruler, as well as precautions to be taken. Han Fei Tzu's writings have been read in every age; his lessons remain timely as scholars reconsider the nature and use of power. Burton Watson provides a new preface and a helpful introduction that places the philosopher in relation to Chinese history and thought. This edition brings this classic to a new generation of readers as it offers fresh insights for those familiar with the text. Han Fie Tzu (280?-233 B.C.) was a prince of the ruling house of the small state of Han. A representative of the Fa-chia, or Legalist, school of philosophy, he produced the final and most readable exposition of its theories.
