Description


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

The Chinese character for R n combines the word for 'person' and the number 'two', representing human connection. And in the teachings of ancient philosopher Confucius, R n is the study of our relationship with those around us.

In this accessible and beautiful book, Yen Ooi explains the various facets of R n and explores how this philosophy applies to everything from our relationship with ourselves and the people in our lives, to how we relate to society and the wider world.

She shows us how, using the basic principles of R n and through simple changes to our lives, we can connect better with friends, family and colleagues, become helpful members of society and find fulfilment in ideas of community, justice, morality and compassion.

And, ultimately, how to become happier human beings.
