The Confucian tradition [of moral self cultivation] spanning over 2,500 years - Kongzi ('Confucius' - 551-479 B.C.E.), Mengzi ('Mencius' - 391-308 B.C.E.), Xunzi ('Hsun Tzu' - 310-219 B.C.E.), Zhu Xi (1130-1200 C.E.), Wang Yangming (1472-1529 C.E.), Yan Yuan (1635-1704 C.E.), Dai Zhen (1723-1777 C.E.) - in a nutshell! Organized, clear, concise, superb! Enriching endnotes with works cited for further research/reading. A highly recommended first text reading for an overview of Chinese philosophy for the professor of Chinese philosophy to student or layperson!
