Editor's Notes

This site presents James Legge's translation of The Doctrine of the Mean in full. It also supplies the brief descriptions he made for each chapter of the book, each of them a part of the chapter header.

Note that the book is short, consisting of thirty-three chapter in all. I divided The Doctrine into six sections to make accessing the book easier.

It was June 2nd, 2009 when I last visited this book.
