Meeting 1. "The analects"

In our first meeting, we'll discuss the foundational text of Confucianism, "Lun yu," generally translated as "The analects." ("Confucius" is the name given by Westerners to a great teacher and philosopher known to speakers of Mandarin as Kongzi, Kong Qiu, or Kong Fuzi.) You are welcome to use any translation, though I recommend those by D. C. Lau, Arthur Waley, and Raymond Dawson. There is also a very good translation available for free at

    We had an excellent discussion that covered many of the most important aspects of Kongzi's thought.

    I thought the date had been changed to Thursday. I can make either, please let me know which. Thank you.

      Because the Chinatown branch is not open late on Thursdays, I have scheduled all of our meetings for Wednesday nights.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
