Abstract:

Confucius's Analects is an innovative textbook for teaching and learning
Chinese language and culture at the advanced level. It combines classical
and modern Chinese language skills, Chinese culture, and expository and
narrative writing practice.

Confucius's Analects is a central work of East Asian intellectual history that
permeates Chinese and East Asian thought and values today. Students
seeking to develop advanced language proficiency need to be familiar with the
Analects in order to understand the wealth of literary allusions that
appear in
modern as well as classical Chinese writings. A selection of 82 passages,
which are all educational and practical for present-day students, are grouped
thematically into four parts-knowledge, morality, wisdom, and government-and
covers Confucian teachings from personal cultivation to social contribution.

Features:
- A quadrupled text system includes quotations from the Analects, modern
Chinese translations of these passages, short essays of exegesis that
elaborate on the major points, and historical Chinese stories that
illustrate the
theme
- Vocabulary expansion sections show how monosyllabic classical words
have each expanded into ten selected modern bisyllabic words
- Almost 300 idioms and corresponding exercises teach their rhetorical value
and provide cultural exposure
- Sections on function words help students to understand classical Chinese
- Extensive writing practice in each chapter includes debate, composition,
storytelling, and topical research-all requiring internet research
- Audio files of recitation of the Analects passages by a native speaker are
available online for free

Designed for students who have studied Chinese for three years in college or
an equivalent, this textbook is ideal for students of advanced Chinese,
classical Chinese, and Chinese culture. Knowledge of classical Chinese is
not a prerequisite.
