Publisher Description

The Analects is a collection of sayings and ideas attributed to the Chinese philosopher Confucius and his contemporaries, believed to have been compiled and written by Confucius's followers.

Confucius believed that the welfare of a country depended on the moral cultivation of its people, beginning from the nation's leadership. He believed that individuals could begin to cultivate an all-encompassing sense of virtue through ren and that the most basic step to cultivating ren was devotion to one's parents and older siblings.

He taught that one's individual desires do not need to be suppressed but that people should be educated to reconcile their desires via rituals and forms of propriety through which people could demonstrate their respect for others and their responsible roles in society.
