about this item

Overcoming the weariness and frustration of dealing with a text that is so full of archaic and pseudo-archaic language, additions and lapses, and errors in transmission, scholars examine various chapters of the Shangshu from new perspectives. One of the Five Classics that the Han times (202 BCE-220 CE) defined as the core of ancient Chinese learning, it is the fountainhead of Chinese political philosophy. Among the topics are language and the ideology of kingship in the "Canon of Yao,""Shu" traditions and text recomposition: a reevaluation of "Jinteng" and "Zhou Wu Wang you ji," speaking of documents: Shu citations in Warring States texts, against (uninformed) idleness: situating the didacticism of "Wu yi," and concepts of law in the Shangshu.
