New publication: Philosophers of the Warring States: A Sourcebook in Chinese Philosophy

Philosophers of the Warring States: A Sourcebook in Chinese Philosophy (Broadview Press)

Translated with commentary by Kurtis Hagen and Steve Coutinho.

"The book that many who teach and study early Chinese philosophy have been waiting for." Amy Olberding

Philosophers of the Warring States is an anthology of new translations of essential readings from the classic texts of early Chinese philosophy, informed by the latest scholarship. It includes the Analects of Confucius, Meng Zi (Mencius), Xun Zi, Mo Zi, Lao Zi (Dao De Jing), Zhuang Zi, and Han Fei Zi, as well as short chapters on the Da Xue and the Zhong Yong. Pedagogically organized, this book offers philosophically sophisticated annotations and commentaries as well as an extensive glossary explaining key philosophical concepts in detail. The translations aim to be true to the originals yet accessible, with the goal of opening up these rich and subtle philosophical texts to modern readers without prior training in Chinese thought.

If anyone is interested in this edition for potential course adoption or to review, please contact tbodie [at] broadviewpress.com (Tara Bodie) by email or at the address below. Tara Bodie would also be happy to provide complimentary electronic exam copies upon request.
