《中国文化读本(英文版)》不是一本介绍中国文化简单常识的通俗读物,不是一本中国文化的小百科辞典,更不是一本文化导游手册,而是一本能显示中国文化内在精神和中国人的活生生的心灵世界、文化性格、生活态度、审美情趣的文化读物。我们希望中国文化读本(英文版)不仅能为国内外读者提供一种对中国文化的生动的、通俗的介绍,而且能为国内外读者提供一种对中国文化的新鲜的、有深度的认识。我们认为,只有这种有深度的认识才能照亮中国文化的本来面貌。

《中国文化读本(英文版)》分为37章,抓住中国文化中一些最有特色的内容和亮点(如四大发明、建筑、绘画、饮食、功夫、围棋),用典型的事例和材料进行具体和深入的介绍,在介绍知识的同时,力求讲出中国文化的精神,讲出中国文化的内在意味,讲出中国文化的核心价值。

Featuring the distinctive heights of Chinese culture, the authors share with you their insights into the concepts and passions of the Chinese nation over the past 5,000 years. On reading through this historical range of remarkable creativity and flair for innovation, still evident today in living artistic masterpieces and folk traditions, you soon acquire a better understanding of the cultural character, life views, aesthetic pursuits and national spirit of the Chinese people. Through every work of art or architecture, a fascinating story or legend unfolds…

Confucius (551-479 BC), known in China as Kongzi, given name Qiu and alias Zhongni, was a native of Zouyi (present-day Qufu in Shandong Province) of the State of Lu during the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC). A great thinker, educator and founder of Confucianism, Confucius is an ancient sage to the Chinese people. His words and life story were recorded by his disciples and their students in The Analects (Lunyu).

An enduring classic of Chinese culture, The Analects has influenced all thinkers, writers and politicians in the over-2,000-year-long history of China after Confucius. No scholar could truly understand this long-standing culture or the inner world of the ancient Chinese without this book.
