Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have
transformed the way we see ourselves � and each other. They have inspired
debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged,
provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives � and destroyed them. Now
Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and
visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.
Perhaps the most widely read thinker of all time, Confucius transformed
Chinese philosophy with his belief that the greatest goal in life was
pursuit of �The Way�: a search for virtue not as a means to rewards in this
world or the next, but as the pinnacle of human existence.
