Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Through beautiful, nuanced studies of the early texts, the authors provide a powerful portrait of early Chinese ethical thought in all of its philosophical sophistication. These outstanding essays should play a crucial role in bringing Chinese discussions of ethics into the larger conversations of philosophy in general." -- Michael Puett, Professor of Chinese History, Harvard University, author of To Become a God: Cosmology, Sacrifice, and Self-Divinization in Early China
