I have posted an update to my Analects Book 1 presentation on SlideShare featuring a few minor formatting changes as well as a summary of its key themes and a list of the “supporting cast” that appears in it.
As I wrote here, this cast includes a mix of “young pretenders” whose supporters were vying to have them anointed as the successors to Confucius and “old companions” who loyally stood by him him during even his darkest times in exile from his home state of Lu.
Leadership, learning, governance, and relationships are the most important themes of Book 1 . You can read more about Confucius’s thoughts on leadership here as well as download this presentation from SlideShare. Watch out for articles and presentations on the other three key themes in the near future.
