Xun-zi (ca.298 – 238 BC) was the third patriarch of Confucianism, known also to be the most eminent thinker and scholar of his day. This ebook is an abridged and systematic reconstitution of his words as they appear in the Book of Xun-zi. It highlights his challenge to the then popular anthropomorphic view of Heaven; his foray into the epistemological and problematic aspects of the human mind; as well as his theory on society and government, including the organizational aspects of public administration. It also explains why he was at odds with Mencius over the inborn nature of man. A total of 65 pages with Chinese textual documentation, suitable for students of Chinese philosophy, culture, and language.
