Confucius is one of the most influential figures-as historical individual and as symbol-in world history; and the Analects, the sayings attributed to Confucius and his disciples, is a classic of world literature. Nonetheless, how to understand both figure and text is constantly under dispute. Surprisingly, this volume is the first and only anthology on these topics in English. Here, contributors apply a variety of different methodologies (including philosophical, philological, and religious) and address a number of important topics, from Confucius and Western "virtue ethics" to Confucius' attitude toward women to the historical composition of the text of the Analects. Scholars will appreciate the rigor of these essays, while students and beginners will find them accessible and engaging.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Providing a collection of sophisticated new essays in various perspectives on the primal father of Chinese thought and values, Confucius and the Analects: New Essays is a highly anticipated and worthwhile contribution to Confucian studies. This text will remain a standard work in the field that belongs on the desk of every dedicated sinologist. At the same time, it manifests an opening sally, and one hopes that this text will stir others in the field to respond to the issues raised in the common quest for a more authentic understanding and deeper appreciation of Confucius and his thought. * Journal of the American Academy of Religion *
... may be the most important of several books published in this field during the past few years. Bryan W. Van Norden's rich but concise introduction is one of the most important resources available in this anthology. * The Journal of Asian Studies *
... this volume preserves unity without sacrificing diversity and introduces readers to central issues in the study of early Chinese thought without imposing a uniform or systematic interpretation. * The Journal of Asian Studies *
