Overview

Mencius by Mencius, Students of Mencius

This ancient text records the teachings of Mencius, China's "second sage". A philosopher who worked in the fourth century B.C., Mencius studied with the grandson of Confucius and is credited with the development of orthodox Confucianism. Sometimes mystical, sometimes poetic, his teachings are often unpredictable with startling insights that bring the narrative to life.
