According to Shelly Hawkes & Cathy McCarron, Art History & English, “Most Americans have only a superficial knowledge of Confucian philosophy and do not appreciate how it can be a resource for contemporary living.  Henry Rosemont’s master class at Middlesex Community College on April 4-5, 2014, offered advice on how to appreciate The Analects of Confucius on its own terms and how to ‘make friends with it.’  Rosemont called the Analects ‘the text which most influenced the human race except for the bible.’ The following is a brief summary of some ideas from the Analects we want to introduce to our students.”
