Timing and Rulership in Master Lu's Spring and Autumn Annals (Lushi chunqiu)

Front Cover
SUNY Press, Mar 21, 2002 - Philosophy - 265 pages
Written by Lu Buwei, Master Lu's Spring and Autumn Annals influenced the king who became China's first emperor. In this text, Sellmann (philosophy and East Asian studies, U. of Guam) examines the life and times of Lu Buwei, and various aspects of the Annals including its structure, the concept of "perfect timing," the role of human nature, the justification of the state, and the importance of cosmic, historical and personal timing. He also suggests possible implications for modern concepts of time, human nature, political order, and social and environmental ethics. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
