Wu Zi's Art of War

 

Disciplines > Warfare > Wu Zi's Art of War

 

Sun Tzu's Art of War is one of the most famous Chinese texts. What is often not realized is that there are a number of other equally interesting books that may be explored and which illustrate the maturity of those early days.

Wu Zi (440-381 BC) lived at the time when a number of Chinese states were at war with one another. He was Confucian but believed military strength was needed to uphold these values. Wu Zi is also known as Wu Qi, Wu Ze or Wu Chi. His text is also called the Wuzi.
