CONFUCIUS ANALECTS SLINGERLAND PDF

This edition goes beyond others that largely leave readers to their own devices in understanding this cryptic work, by providing an entree into the text that parallels the traditional Chinese way of approaching it: alongside Slingerland's exquisite rendering of the work are his translations of a selection of classic Chinese commentaries that shed light on difficult passages, provide historical and cultural context, and invite the reader to ponder a range of interpretations. The ideal student edition, this volume also includes a general introduction, notes, multiple appendices--including a glossary of technical terms, references to modern Western scholarship that point the way for further study, and an annotated bibliography. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? This work not only exemplifies meticulous research and scrupulous craft of translation, it also offers a new perspective for "Analects" scholarship and a new model for "Analects" translation.

Write a customer review. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Verified Purchase. I teach Chinese Philosophy. Although I do not read Classical Chinese and can't comment on the quality of the translation from that perspective, I will say the text is very fluent and the translator is well-respected.

This translation is frequently cited by other experts. The commentary is excellent. Highly recommended. There's at least a few sentences of exposition for each saying or dialogue, and some expositions last for a page. Slingerland's selections from traditional commentaries help to explain the more semiotically embedded analects: for example, the obscure conversation in 4.

This edition is especially helpful for outsiders like me. The introductory material and explanatory notes, including a multitude of interpretations from Chinese commentators through the centuries, makes this by far the most useful and interesting English version I have ever read.

I learned not only the meanings of passages but also overarching themes in Confucian thought, Chinese history and ancient customs, and Chinese language. I highly recommend this work. I bought this book for a college course. I've read the Analects before but I thought this was a great translation.

The commentary also helps a great deal since the Analects themselves can be very vague. In some of the commentary the author goes to great lengths to tell the background story which helps give you a much better understanding of the context.

Overall great book. Best translation ever. Includes the all so critical CONTEXT, the mutiple commentators over history are given their due, the notes supurb, the quality of the writing clear and cogent.
