0 Reviews
This first paperback edition of a classic text includes a new introductory essay on "Tu Wei-ming's Confucianism," by Robert Cummings Neville, Dean of the School of Theology at Boston University, and a new preface by the author. The 12 essays in this volume concisely illustrate the inherent "religiousness" of Confucianism, one of the most influential systems of thought on earth. Through an intensive focus on the Confucian process of self-cultivation, noted author and teacher Tu Wei-ming aggressively explores the spiritual dimension of this tradition.
