Through a large number of historical examples and comparative research methods, combined with his own research experience in over 20 English translations of The Analects of Confucius and his recent research achievements in the philosophy of kung fu, the author of this book tries to make readers understand Confucius in different roles popularly and profoundly: Confucius, as a historical figure, spiritual leader, philosopher, political reformer, educator, and human being, aims to provide readers with a guide to life that is different from the prevailing modern Western ideas. This book takes a comparative approach. While comparing Confucius's kung fu with the mainstream intellectualism in the West, he also talks about the mainstream values in the modern and contemporary West, such as faith, dignity, human rights, justice, equality, freedom, democracy, science, etc. This book focuses on how Confucianism can challenge Western ideas in these fields of axiology and how Confucianism can serve as a resource for constructing these values in the post-modern context.
