Abstract

Maxims for the Well-Governed Household by Chu Yung-ch’un and translated by Edward H. Kaplan is a seventeenth- century essay which maintained broad popularity, especially as a subject for calligraphic and pedagogic exercises, throughout the late Imperial period In China and among traditionalists even well Into republican times. Under an alternative title, Chu Wen-kung chia-hsun (Lord Chu's Household Instructions) it was sometimes mistakenly ascribed to Chu Hsi (1130-1200), often considered the greatest Confucian after Confucius himself, rather than to Its actual author, Chu Yung-ch'un, an indication of the degree to which it embodied for its audience the essence of orthodox Neo-Confucianism.
