Coming at the end of the great flowering of philosophical inquiry in Warring States China, when the foundations for traditional Chinese thought were laid, Xunzi occupies a place analogous to that of Aristotle in the West.
This collection of works contains one of the most systematic philosophical expositions by any early Confucian thinker, and it gives accounts of virtually every aspect of the intellectual, cultural, and social life of his time. This is the last of three volumes that constitute the first complete translation of the Xunzi into English.
