Overview

The teachings of the great Chinese philosopher Confucius have had as great an impact on the culture of the Far East as The Bible has had on that of West. As they are presented here, "The Teachings of Confucius" consists of "The Analects," "The Great Learning" and "The Doctrine of the Mean."

"The Analects" is the most important of the teachings of Confucius. It is a collection of speeches and discussions between Confucius and his various disciples that illustrate his precepts: that anyone, regardless of his station in life, could become a superior man by living a virtuous life.

"The Great Learning" is a protocol for living, even the humblest actions of everyday living. It is embodied by the practice illustrated by the Seven Steps.
