brief introduction:

This book is the first part of the "Becoming New with the Ancient" series. "Becoming New with the Ancient" is to learn from the experience of the past, and "becoming new" is to innovate. "The Great Learning" is one of China's "Four Books" and the introductory classic of Confucianism. It is a textbook for cultivating management talents in ancient times. "The Great Learning" has a complete and clear ideological system, which is based on the "Tao of the Great Learning", the "Three Programs" (explicit virtue, closeness to the people, and the pursuit of perfection) and the "Eight Items" (investigation of things, knowledge, sincerity, righteousness, and self-cultivation). (Organizing the family, governing the country, and bringing peace to the world) as the center, advocating self-cultivation, the way of a gentleman, and perfection, which contains a lot of wisdom.

Governance has become a hot topic in recent years and deserves the attention of executives from public institutions, private institutions and non-governmental organizations. This book briefly introduces the origin, definition, classification and application of the concept of governance, and specifically introduces the definition, theory and importance of corporate governance and public governance. This book hopes to open the door for modern governors to learn Confucianism. Perhaps some readers will eventually become "Confucian entrepreneurs", "scholarly managers" or "scholarly governors" ).

The characteristics of this book are that it annotates the full text of "The Great Learning" in modern plain language, uses simple and easy-to-understand diagrams to explain its ideological system, combines the theories and concepts of modern Western governance, and finally extracts some practical ideas from "The Great Learning" that are applicable to modern society. Governance Wisdom hopes to bring readers a new reading experience.
