    Although Confucius (551-479 BCE) is considered to represent the peak of traditional Chinese thought, the standard arrangement of his Analects, which were compiled in haphazard fashion from his disciples' lecture notes, obscures the full profundity of his ideas. This new translation, rearranged thematically to form a coherent whole, presents Confucius's own words separately from those of his disciples, with brief modern commentary that explains the internal logic of Confucian philosophy.
