This book makes Chinese ethics theoretically more understandable through an interdisciplinary approach from a hermeneutic perspective. The Analects of Confucius are structurally analyzed so as to reveal the universal truths and pragmatic rationality implied in the maxims of this important classic of world philosophy. The composition, constitution, and structure of the Han Academic system are studied, and other pre-Qin Chinese ideologies, like Taoist nihilism and Mencian-Confucian ethics, are also discussed.
