Inhaltsangabe: Through a systematic introduction of Confucius as a historical figure, a spiritual leader, a philosopher, a political reformer, an educator, and a person (with a chapter for each of the above), this book offers a comprehensive, lucid, and yet in-depth articulation of Confucius and his teachings for modern Western students. It explains how his ideas are different from their Western counter parts as well as the dogmatized or overly intellectualistic understandings of Confucianism framed under the Western influence. The book reveals clearly how the Master's insights can be a rich resource for addressing contemporary problems and re-enchanting the world and the contemporary life.

Rezension: Ni Peimin's book shifts attention from considering Confucius as a theorist to reading him as a guide to the art of living, or to life as an aesthetic endeavor. Confucius is masterfully constructed as an interrelated whole, while at the same time, parts can be selected for discussion or a short read, without a need to link them to other parts. The sections are accurate in their biographical and historical details, while teaching that art of living. In both music and society, harmony works longer if it is a blend of differing voices than if it is the conformity of all instruments or voices sounding (thinking) the same. There is harmony in variety. In the section on secular immortality, Confucius and Ni ask us to consider one kind of immortality as the lasting impact of virtuous exemplars, whom they describe, on their communities and larger social groups. Throughout the book there are insightful comparisons with relevant Western figures. For example, the goal of the Jesuit missionary Matteo Ricci (1552-1610) was to learn "What should I believe is true?" The Confucian goal was to learn "how to live one's life in this world." -- Donald Munro, University of Michigan In this remarkable book, Peimin Ni presents a systematic interpretation of Confucius from a gongfu perspective and invites readers to appreciate the Confucian ethical life in artistic, rather than theoretical, terms. Thus understood, Confucius's teachings ultimately are aimed not at setting up moral principles and rules to constrain people, but at providing guidance to enable people to lead the good life. This book provides readers a refreshing view of Confucius and his philosophy. It makes an excellent reading for scholarly exploration as well as in the classroom. -- Chenyang Li, author of The Confucian Philosophy of Harmony "Peimin Ni's eloquent new book is an ideal introduction to Confucius and Confucianism. The book ranges from early stories to modern history, but is centered throughout on the Analects, our best source for Confucius's teachings. Professor Ni gives us a sympathetic and engaging treatment of Confucius as person, thinker, and teacher, and makes clear why Confucius's values, life story, and ideas have been so inspiring." -- Stephen C. Angle, Professor of Philosophy and East Asian Studies, Wesleyan University There is no shortage of introductory books on Confucius. What makes Ni's book outstanding is, as its subtitle shows, that it takes a gongfu approach, not in the sense that it presents Confucius as a martial artists with wonderful skills of fighting. Rather, it pictures Confucius as one of the greatest Chinese philosophers, if not the greatest one, who, instead of interested in solving profound intellectual riddles, is good at teaching his students the simple art of living a life that is authentically human. Confucius: The Man and the Way of Gongfu is simply the best of the kind. -- Huang Yong, Professor, Department of Philosophy, The Chinese University of Hong Kong
