"Human nature is an area of great concern to educational psychologists. It is also a topic frequently discussed by ancient Chinese thinkers and teachers." -Zhu Yongxin
A detailed study of how modern psychology and ancient philosophy impacts education
Drawing from his extensive background in psychology, years of historical research, and groundbreaking work in education, China's acclaimed Professor Zhu Yongxin combines the disciplines of modern psychology and ancient philosophy in one essential volume.

For modern educators, the study of psychology has proven to be an invaluable academic discipline and applied science that helps us better understand the human mind and behavior. Many of its basic principles are not modern at all, but reach back hundreds, even thousands of years to the world's greatest schools of thought-most notably those in ancient China.
