about this item

During the Axial Age, 800-200 BC, while Greece moved from destiny to things in themselves and the Levant moved from destiny to salvation, says Kejian, China moved from divining destiny to seeking Dao. Surveying the prominent schools of thought in pre-Qin China--Daoism, Confucianism, Mohism, and Legalism--he explores the development of thought from the primitive concept of destiny to the philosophical "Dao" and offers a discussion of the major philosophical themes in each school of thought with a unique collection of insights from commentators.
