孔子（公元前551年9月28日－前479年），子姓孔氏，名丘，字仲尼，鲁（今中國山东曲阜）人，中国春秋末期的思想家和教育家。孔子是中华文化中的核心学说儒家的首代宗師，集華夏上古文化之大成，在世時已被譽為“天縱之聖”、“天之木鐸”，是當時社會上最博學者之一，並且被后世尊为至聖（聖人之中的聖人）、至聖先師、万世师表。孔子和他创立的儒家思想对中国和朝鲜、台灣、日本、越南等地區有深远的影响，這些地區又被稱爲儒家文化圈。孔子又與耶穌、釋迦牟尼和蘇格拉底並稱世界四大聖哲。(维基百科)The Analects, also known as the Analects of Confucius, are a record of the words and acts of the central Chinese thinker and philosopher Confucius and his disciples, as well as the discussions they held. The Chinese title literally means “discussion over [Confucius'] words.” Written during the Spring and Autumn Period through the Warring States Period (ca. 479 BC – 221 BC), the Analects is the representative work of Confucianism and continues to have a tremendous influence on Chinese and East Asian thought and values today.
