A Chinese scholar teaching in the US and an American scholar (now retired) who taught in China, present the first complete and annotated translation of an important philosophical treatise from 18th century China. Tai chen (1724-77), in his An evidential study of the meaning of terms in the Mencius, sought to understand the words used by the fourth-century B.C. Confucian, Mencius. The importance of the work is in its investigation into how the meanings of words evolved, or had been altered, in the intervening centuries. Includes a glossary (without pronunciation).
