Cultural relics embody the thoughts, beliefs, and intentions of our antecedents. Based on 72 pieces of cultural relics, this book tells the philosophical thinking of Chinese ancestors in 18 topics over dozens of centuries from ancient times to the Ming Dynasty when Wang Yangming lived. These thoughts have shaped the defining features of Chinese civilization and determined the path that Chinese people need to stick to.
