brief introduction:

This book is the second book in the "Becoming New with the Ancient Series" after "The Wisdom of Governance in Universities". "With the past" means to learn from the experience of the past, and "for the new" means to innovate. "The Doctrine of the Mean" is one of China's "Four Books" and an important classic of Confucianism. It is in the same vein as the teachings of Confucius and Mencius. "The Doctrine of the Mean" is a book that is difficult to understand but rich in content. Its ideological system is expressed in a metaphysical way. The core concepts include destiny, nature, Tao, teaching, the three talents (the way of heaven, the way of earth, and the way of humanity), and the harmony between heaven and man. One (praising the transformation and education of heaven and earth, and participating in heaven and earth), neutrality, harmony, moderation, sincerity, "three virtues" (wisdom, benevolence, courage), "five virtues" (kings and ministers, father and son, husband and wife, brothers and sisters, friends) (Jiao Jiao), the Nine Classics of Governance, Caution in Independence, and the Way of a Gentleman, etc.

Modern managers need to deal with the internal and external environment of the organization, including organizational governance, markets, products, competition, stakeholder expectations, etc. The knowledge, abilities and style of managers directly affect the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization. The author believes that managers need to continue their education, possess the spirit of inquiry of scholars, and aim to become “scholarly managers”. Managers who read "The Doctrine of the Mean" can cultivate their personal cultivation and choose appropriate management or ways of dealing with people that can serve the present purpose, killing two birds with one stone.

The feature of this book is that it uses modern plain text to annotate the full text of "The Doctrine of the Mean", uses simple and easy-to-understand diagrams to explain its core concepts, and combines the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle's views on good and virtue. ) and the ideas of "the golden mean", as well as concepts such as modern "middle-of-the-road management", combining Chinese and Western elements to refine some management wisdom applicable to modern times.
