Bat this should recall to as, that in considering China, we actually axe regarding a country whose ©nan of ©vents* and pageant of history, may properly be measured in terms of milieniume. And for vast reoohoB of that time, despite deoedenee and degenera-tion, her civil service system has remained one of the great glories of her civilisation. She has of coarso0 known tyranny and oppression. There, the ©aaoal, even anooascioae, assumption of special prerogative by the privileged claes, has galled the heart of the "little mnn jnet as chafiagiy as i t has done el where* Bat through it all , there has remained an attitude to learning* ana a feeling of the obligations of governs-v meat, auoh as wo associate with tHe liberal concepts inherent in the finest Ideals of democracy. These things0 at this time are perhaps worth mentioii-lng« Thle ie an era in which the implioatlone of the tra-ditions of any people might well have far reaching oonee*! - i i * quenoea* We have recently heard a eignifleant figure of one of the great Western democracies, say, of a oorres° ponding person in China, that she might make nice speeches about democracy, hot she knew nothing about how to live it* It is Important that we Should understand the democratic ideals inherent in China's history? and perhaps more im-portant s t i l l that we shoald realise hot? the marsh of events, and ideological factors hate east those principles into moulds differing from our own expressions of similar beliefs* We shall learn that at a time so remote, that even Confucius could refer to i t as the anoient age, accessi-bility of education to all the oitisena had reached a level that even todaye sen eoersely be despised* Nor was it con-sidered enough that people should be merely sobjest to opportunities of elementary schooling, those who benefited, irrespective of rank, or wealth, were given opportunities to sooure even the highest learning, the best mind® having been discovered* and then educated, it was the farther duty of the government to employ them and give them the oppor-tunity to bring the benefits of educated rulers to the people? The governmental policy was to actively seek and train the talented to f i l l high positions* Hot was this properly considered to be a device of the ruling class to secure machiavellian tools to further exploit the peopleo A very definite part of the education of the ministers and * 111 «.. advisors, was the reelisatioa of the true Ideal© of govern-mentp and these weie essentially demcoaratlG. Srue, the Eisperer ruled by divine rights bat the maadei® to that right WQQ held bv the people* If the people revolted agslnst a tyrannloal smier, the^  Dot eia ag&iaet Heatea* but rathe* Hoaven in this way withdrew the mandate from the ruler, "Eecven esse as my people see, Heaven hears as w& people hee*«" (1) Aga|a aad again rulers were exhorted to remember that they were the aorvante of the people. Here of coarse, me hate been speaking of theories enc3 1deals, bnt even today there have been expressed, alee m Ideals, principles of government, which m might oonslder as leas proiee-'Horth^ . la praot!oe0 China has had of eoarise hear dark elde, there hae beeja bribery and eorroptioli,, palace revolutions and palace assassinations* Scholara and minister• have not bees wanting to paMer to the perversa end depraved aims of unworthy mioses. Bat there have been others. There hate been a&vieore who spoke oat boldly and directly against the wlokednese oat the staler* Sometimes they hate reformed the offenfilcg ruler, at times they hay® at least oheeked the outward mciiifeetation of hia ovll nature.. In other cesee their insistence on rectitude has (1) She King, part $ bfc 1, Beet Ion £B verse 7: Legg© (tr) Classic ei History, in, Home (ed) Sacred Books and e a y l y literature of the last, tola 11, p 84* *»- it merely meant the termination of their own official career, with vsryiag degrees of finality.*.

For each offioersi it was, by adherence to these' principles and the exemplary potter of their own character, obligation and an opportunity* to bring the benefits of good and enlightened government to all people; II General Bsmarks on the Scope ofthis faps$ The preponderant burden of the following paper ie borne by the material on Confucianism. There are farioas reasons for this, ranging from the fact that this schoolB in ths ttidth of ite influence* at least, is the most signi* fleant of the Chinese philosophies, to the relatively irrelevant fact of mars availability' of material* ' She topic of disou ©Sion;is ;one that^ 'signally 'fends to 'favour" OonsWianisaj there may have been others who suggested features or developed systems of greater interest In their theoretical implications, Confucius is preeminently the teacher, farther, prior to the rise of the more Important schools of thought, there wse'already in China, a consider-able body of significant IItere-feurej as Confucianism me definitely the philosophy of a aoholar of literary tastes* the cream of this material isas readily incorporated into the Confucian tradition* ffe* *s*>ge of material considered for investigatien is that asecola ted with the male Chinese schools, whloh was produced from the beginning of speculative thought to the ©ad of the $r©*Chri©ti*# era* this; ©etabiieheB .a field' that la both rich in material ojod ale© oonveoieatly demar-cated o Almost every foreign influence ie excluded (the, oultural heritage ©f India, brought by the Buddhists* did not reach China until 68 A«2>») while the wealth of native Chinese writing already produced is indicated by the number of philosophical authors and works listed in the Imperial Catalogue of the first oentury B*C«w i t inoludess 68 Ooufuoian authors with a total of 8&6 works $7 faoiet authors with 993 wo*fee 81 Yia-vsng authors with 369 works 10 legalists with 817 works 7 liogioiaris with Sd work© 6 llehista with 86' wor&s. . altogether* with a few other wor&S la minor eohool^ f. making a total of 4,324 works by 189 authors* The hulls of the material quoted actually falls between sis and two hundred B«C«| this includes much of the most significant and original writing, and also nearly every important basis worfc upon which the various schools were founded« Generally, indieation of the theories of the Chinese authors has been through Quotations giving a distinct SK* preseion of each idea presented! there has been but little attefcpt to draw any in|erenoes of unwritten oonclusions or presuppositions implicit in such sources; sole acceptable •warrant f o r inclusion o f materiel i n this paper has been its definitive and stated occurrence in the original mzfca development of the main theme hes thus been attempted through the suitable grouping of appropriate quotations* More ha© been intended though than merely to collect and reproduce materiel with no other claim t o coherence than that i t le all loosely associated with education* A definite concentration of material, and a consistent line of development is presented to demonstrate thsattitude talcen by the different schools toward education in regard to its various functions; as a method for the acquisition of knowledge* in rounding and completing the personality, fulfilling in wisdom the moral character, and finally, its application to the every day life of man as individual and eltlaen* ^his plan has been folloised* however* net by pre--Ban t ing an exposition supported by illustrative quotations, but rather by so selecting and arranging the passages- given* that they themselves indicate the general scheme of the point of view cfferedo % thie procedure, i t Is expected to generally confine attention to taaterlsl germane to the topic* end at the same time permit a more immediate ex* presslon of the theories of the various echo ois considered. In accord with this, reference has been almost e$» ciusiveiy to the books representative of these eehooli* particularly the besic foundation wor&e of each school. * T i l l rather than to books written about these books. However in considering Chinese oourcee there ie need to give some regard to the pr obi ems of interpretations the funuaiaenta! language atruetore, and the peculiar terseness, affected by the literati present certain unions problems ©e that generally a direct word for word rendition into Ec^Lieh la well clgh meaningless* The need for sensitive dieorimina-tion in evaluating the elaboration necessary to adequately fulfil the requirements of translation'suggests that the material discussed must be considered against a wider frame of reference than that offered by these wortes alone*~ this however* along with other probleas of translation is more fully considered in part three of this ijotroduoti©^* 111 Boutine Details and Meeb&nioal Arrangement of the thesis All quotations given in the following paper are from published English translations* While there are several ex-cellent translations of some of the wer&s considered in other European languages» none of th^ se available seem to offer a significantly original or distinctive point of view. Beforenoe to any extended paesage in the Chinese would hove but little additional significance, while the subject is not one to- generally require precise analysis of any individual term. She topic throws emphasis on the practicalt and ap-plies aspects of psychology* so that th© involved and v&gue nature of #©me of the concepts underlying the learning process do act hove to be thoroughly considered, end there is but little need to try and determine the e»act degreei of identity end similarity of Chinese and iagiiah ;te®ai.nol©@y in .yegara to ©oca basic features ass *miad% "&newledg#% "reality**# and other such fuadamentalso the general problems that arise la the field of trans* letion have been so frequently indicated and discussed by linguists and ©eraantioiete as to xegalro no further eon* eideratlon here* the peculiar difficulties associated with the translation of Chinee0 philosophical worfcs* have also been elegantly and <?0acl6©ly presented by Bi0ha,3fds in "Menelue on the Mind.'"

Indeed both these works while recognized aa having an independent existence, may also fee found in the chapters ©f th© Si XI. ffae Tab Sueh Kuch of the most important material in the r^eat Learning is presented is th© opening passage, which is attributed to Confucius, and which forms th© theme for the following chapters of commentary by a later disciple: ©i© principles of the higher education consist in pre-' serving man's clear character* in giving new life to the people, end indwelling (or resting) in perfection, or th© ultimate good. Only after knowing th© goal of perfection where one should dwell* ©an ©**© have a definite purpose in life. Only after having a definite purpose ia Hf© ©an one achieve ealaaiess of mind. only after having achieved calraness of mind, can one have peaceful repose. Only after having peaceful repose ean one begin to think. Only after one has learned to think, can on© achieve knowledge. There are a foundation and a superstructure in the constitution of things,, and a beginning end an end In the ©ours© of events. Therefore to know the proper aeouenee or relative erdar ©f things ia the beginning of wisdom. $h© ©neients who wished t© preserve the fresh or clear character of the people of th© world, would first set ©boat ordering their national life, Shea© who wished to order their national life, would first set abeut regulating their -family life.
