Confucius taught a moral wisdom that would become a predominant social force in China from the second century BCE until the mid-twentieth century. It would appear that his aim was to turn his pupils into good government officials, but his quaint humanistic platitudes, maxims, and quasi-enigmatic anecdotes made spiritual fodder for the next two thousand years of the culture.

In Confucius in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Confucius’ life and ideas and explains their influence on man’s struggle to understand his existence in the world. The book also includes selections from Confucius’ work, a brief list of suggested readings for those who wish to delve deeper, and chronologies that place Confucius within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.

    " "When I was 15 I was only interested in studying. When I was 30 I began my life; at 40 I was self-assured; at 50 I understood my place in the vast scheme of things; at 60 I learned to give up arguing; and now at 70 I can do whatever I like without disrupting my life." "

    " Kind of dry. May have been more fun in book format as opposed to audio. "
