    Mencius by Mencius The Mencius (Chinese: 孟子; pinyin: Mèngzǐ), commonly called the Mengzi, is a collection of anecdotes and conversations of the Confucian thinker and philosopher Mencius. The work dates from the second half of the 4th century BC. Mencius taught that human nature is essentially good, and although this goodness can be either cultivated or squandered, it can never be entirely lost. Zhu placed Mencius third in his list of the Four Books because, having achieved the basic framework and the basic principles, the reader could here proceed to find “stimulation.”.

    Book IV.A (Li Lou I) Unlike most of the books of the Mengzi, this book is not named after Mencius's first interlocutor, but after the first person he of the book seems to take place in, or discuss matters relevant to the state of Qi, but thematically benevolence or humanity to self and others, especially in government, comes up often. Mencius subscribed to the basic Confucian doctrine of ren (benevolence), but in elaborating on this doctrine he gave it a metaphysical basis. Confucius urged people to be humane toward others so.

      The Mencius, Book VI Book VI.A (Gaozi I) Book VI is perhaps the book of the Mengzi that has had the most scholarly focus; it relates Master Meng's views to a number of longstanding debates in Chinese philosophy and therefore plays an important role in understanding how his claims fit into context. He criticized the basic tenets of the fachia, or Legist, school. Developing Confucius’ principle of the superiority of the nobleman (chiin tzu) over the commoner (hsiaojen), Mencius asserted the immutability of the division of people into the rulers and the ruled—a thesis which from that time on became one of the most important principles.
