MATSUNAGA, Akiraeki
Shikyō Shitchū
Japan: Ikubundō, 1650. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Translated from Chinese into Japanese this rare collection of notes and commentary on Chinese poetry by the famous philosopher Zhu Xi is highly desirable. Zhu Xi (1130 - 1200), was a Chinese philosopher, politician, and writer of the Song dynasty. He was a Confucian scholar who was the leading figure of the School of Principle and the most influential rationalist Neo-Confucian in China. His contributions to Chinese philosophy including his assigning special significance to the Analects, the Mencius, the Great Learning, and the Doctrine of the Mean (the Four Books), his emphasis on the investigation of things, and the synthesis of all fundamental Confucian concepts, formed the basis of Chinese bureaucracy and government for over 700 years. "The second most influential thinker in Chinese history, after Confucius himself." (Slingerland).
