Description

Confucius stands alone among the world's great thinkers. Perhaps no other teacher has exerted so powerful a hold over so many people for so long. For two and a half millennia his sayings, preserved and developed by generations of his followers, have shaped the cultural and political life of the world's most populous nation, and they continue to offer fresh insights for today's globalised society. This audiobook sets Confucius's life and teachings in the context of the long history of China, and examines the origins, meanings and influence of one of history's most enduring philosophical traditions.

Professional reviews

"Opening with delightfully mood-setting music, narrator Nigel Carrington takes the reins and uses his well-modulated authoritative voice to transmit the time-tested wisdom of the great philosopher. Carrington takes perfectly timed pauses to allow the listener a moment or two to digest the ideas gathered here. His tone is friendly and engaging, allowing the delivery of the history and philosophy to settle into a relaxed rhythm. Listeners unfamiliar with Confucius will find a perfect guide in Carrington as he reveals dozens of long held truths. R.O. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
