Legal Philosophy of the Classic Chinese Thinkers

First Edition

Wejen Chang

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Analyses the influence of eight classic Chinese thinkers on the development of Chinese law: Confucius, Laozi, Mozi, Zhuangzi, Mencius, Xunzi, Shang Yang and Han Fei. These thinkers helped found the Confucian, Daoist, Mohist and Legalist schools of thought, and their ideas continue to guide China's thinking and behaviour.
