About the Book

A beautiful book explaining and exploring the Ancient Chinese philosophy of Ren and its positive message of compassion and kindness.

The Chinese character for Ren is a combination of the word for 'person' and the number 'two' .

And in the teachings of Ancient philosopher Confucius, Ren is the study of our relationship with the world around us.

In this beautiful and accessible new book, Yen Ooi explains and explores the various facets of the idea of Ren, from the importance of treating ourselves with kindness and how this can affect others around us, to being benevolent to others and the wider world in general.

Using Confucius's teachings and proving how they are still very relevant to the modern world, Yen Ooi looks at how we can apply this thinking to our own lives. She shows us how we can better relate to friends, family and colleagues, how these lessons can help us become better members of society and, ultimately, how we can find fulfilment in ideas of community, justice, morality and compassion.

And, through Ren, teaches us how to be better humans.

This practical and remarkable book is essential for anyone feeling lost in the modern world.
