Political theorist Loubna El Amine, author of a recent book on Confucian political thinking, has written a provocative reflection on “What is it Like to be Lebanese and to Work on China.”
Two quite different approaches to the Analects:
- Robert Eno’s “On-Line Teaching Translation“
- An on-line project to present “the Analects of Confucius for a modern American audience“
Earlier in the fall, Sam Crane posted a conference paper of his called “Confucianism in Modern American Life” at his blog. There was a bit of discussion there, as well as a longer response here. This is a subject in which I am very interested, and would certainly welcome any further thoughts anyone wants to share.
Over the past year, Edward Chung has published two significant books on Korean Confucianism, one a translation and one an overview. Please read on for details.
A major new book is about to be released: the 704-page Luxuriant Gems of the Spring and Autumn (春秋繁露), attributed to Dong Zhongshu; edited and translated by Sarah A. Queen and John S. Major (Columbia University Press). This is a tremendous accomplishment, and should help to further open up post-classical philosophy to broader attention and analysis.
