Book Title: The Analects of Confucius

Author: The Disciples of Confucius

Book Description:

The Analects of Confucius are collated conversations between Master Kong and his disciples. The book is about 2,500 years old and is much like the biblical Gospels. The philosophy conveyed through The Analects has had a profound influence on Chinese civilization. It was a must-read textbook for all elementary school kids in China until the end of Qing dynasty. Although some of the book's ethical virtue has lost its social context, it has retained its vigor throughout the centuries and is still admired by many scholars all over the world.
