New Book: Yong Huang, Confucius

It has just come to my attention that Yong HUANG’s book Confucius: A Guide for the Perplexed (Bloomsbury 2013) has recently been published [publisher’s site] [Amazon link]. I have only had a chance to take a quick look at it, but it looks to be philosophically sophisticated and yet engaging and accessible. Rather than a systematic overview of Confucius’s teachings, Huang tackles a series of questions that arise “in our everyday life or moral reflection,” and argues that Confucius’s answers are the best — or at least, better than available alternative answers in the Western tradition. Enjoy!

    Thanks, Steve, for posting this note. Thanks also to Hagop.

    As the Amazon site does not have the TOC, and the publisher site only has a brief TOC, anyone interested may visit the Google Book site, where there is not only detailed TOC but also a significant portion of the content of the book: http://books.google.com/books?id=jSt1pVAW-ksC&printsec=frontcover&dq=Confucius:+a+guide+for+the+perplexed&hl=en&sa=X&ei=1XlEUe6uC5S04APp54GwBQ&ved=0CDAQ6AEwAA
