Author brief introduction

The previous series, have great ambitions. Big head "Si Ku Quan Shu", although not say, small as Lu Xun's "flower series", but also to "transfer of new knowledge, and wisdom" for the purpose of. Ocean such as Charles Elliot (Charles Elliot) "the Harvard Classics Series", was recorded in 2000 to the progress of human traces, "education is not complete person, a pocket of the library, to encourage thinking, cultivate the soul, which in the civilization pass pay list". This is confident, cheerful, grave of the past times. We age, temperament to gloomy, spirit is flagging, for good, to beauty, to progress, hold are cynical heart. The book is and others, still in the writing, still in reading, but the purpose is: to teach, or to learn the survival of war, or for the survival time, loosen the pressure in the heart. Whether writing, reading, it is more than survival. For writing, reading and to pay people, are not available. Therefore, to compile a series, but before the purpose for the purpose of. The publisher, is "no", "not" in the editor, for readers, is ridiculous. This is called "three foot shelf" series, is applied to Charles Elliot's "five foot shelf", namely "Harvard Classics Series" alias. But in the face of its ambition, we are ashamed, so on two feet, to say not as good as others. But the "five foot" is the man, "three inch" is the "nail"; was cut two feet instead of four feet seven inches, is we have a little ambition, still can boast. We outline the meaning, taught to the readers. The objective standard, is not for the classic, but had to be "good iron". It is not for the reader as the guide thought, action, is to let people know: there are such people, thought of such a thing, have had such experience. These knowledge, ideas, experience, all we had was not clear, or want to have no. Don't talk about odd, don't blame, don't mean to be mysterious and profound knowledge, to ensure smooth, experience of sophistication, and human features. People unwilling to some things, this series will not take. Second standard, is a book not according to the classification of knowledge, such as the pigeon cage, uncover the science, from the pigeon cage, dig a literary. We only choose the birds of heaven, only was handsome, good call, flying beautiful, that whether it is linked to science, literature, philosophy, or difficult to class labels, we are in the select list. Because the knowledge categories, experience is the whole. Third standard, is a style of text, if not, also want to clear. However, anti said, oblique, side said, but every sentence is the people. The style of the translation, but also as a pursuit of, at least not let readers broke a finger, to count the sentence "". A: some of the show, and that is all. In short, the translation purpose, is to provide a means of knowledge, ideas and experiences for the reader. So we in the "art of war", and have some of the knowledge, in addition to the dull life, a man should have a better experience, in addition to the popular idea. Also let us feel self-esteem, self-confidence, feel to do not waste and human thought. In this cynical age, that is the civilization, although not enough to "male", "Ho also to".
