Editorial Reviews

Review

“To date, there are about forty complete English translations of the Analects. Any new translation that adds to the existing stack faces the challenge of presenting something new and interesting about the text while not sacrificing the faithfulness to the original … Understanding the Analects of Confucius accomplishes this feat impressively … Ni’s translation is a valuable contribution to the field.” ― Reading Religion

Understanding the Analects of Confucius is an outstanding work of sinological scholarship.” ― Henry Rosemont Jr., author of A Reader’s Companion to the Confucian Analects

“Peimin Ni’s translation of the Analects has many virtues that make it stand out as an exemplary version of this most important Chinese text. Ni has chosen to present the text as a living document, embedded in two thousand years of commentarial conversation over its meaning, with today’s readers very much part of that ongoing conversation.” ― Stephen C. Angle, author of Contemporary Confucian Political Philosophy

About the Author

Peimin Ni is Professor of Philosophy at Grand Valley State University. His books include Moral Cultivation and Confucian Character: Engaging Joel J. Kupperman (coedited with Chenyang Li), also published by SUNY Press.
