Li Ki - Ritual and Etiquette in the Organization of Society and the State of Ancient China
Greece and China are two countries that enjoy a long and uninterrupted historical presence. From the mythical heroes of ancient Greece and the legendary kings of ancient China right up to the present day, the cultures of the two countries have shown astonishing endurance and resistance to the upheavals that can hit thriving societies and lead to their disappearance.
For decades, the communication routes between Greece and China were limited, and the Chinese texts that were translated into Greek had more to do with metaphysical Western concerns than questions of how the world is organised, which were originally raised by ancient Chinese thinkers and are now perhaps more topical than ever.
However, things are changing, and Hellenic Post, a bearer of messages between the furthest flung places, is bringing Greek readers one of the most important texts of ancient Chinese thought, which is of unique value for the understanding of a great and important country that is playing a dynamic role in the development of the modern world.
