The Analects: A Guide

Author: Erin Cline

October 12, 2021

In this book, Senior Research Fellow Erin Cline argues there are good reasons to study the Analects as a sacred text, and that doing so sheds light not only on the text and the Confucian tradition, but on what the sacred is, more broadly. It examines what it means for a text to be regarded as sacred and goes on to offer a close study of the Analects, including its structure, its composition and compilation, and the purpose it has served in the Confucian tradition as the earliest and most authoritative record of Kongzi’s teachings and conduct. This book was published by Oxford University Press in the Guides to Sacred Texts series in October 2021.
