Excerpt from The Chinese: Their Education, Philosophy and Letters

You will, I trust, welcome them as old friends, and for their sake give a favorable reception to those which are now, for the first time, introduced to your attention.

The contents of this volume, though somewhat miscellaneous, are yet connected by a certain unity; falling naturally into three divisions, treating respectively of the education, philosophy, and letters of the Chinese - in a word, of their intellectual life.

I call them Hanlin* Papers, not merely because the first three discuss educational processes which culminate in the Hanlin Academy, but more especially because the Hanlin is confessedly the highest embodiment of Chinese intellectual life.

No one of these papers throws any light on your favorite field of research} and none of them pretends to be exhaustive of its special subject; they are offered to you and the public only as a bundle of Beitrage - a small contribution towards the better understanding of China and the Chinese.
