Translations

Welcome to my page of personal draft translations. Most of these were done to prepare for classes I have taught or books I have written, and some are hopefully going to become their own books in the future. For now, I am happy to share this work in progress with my paid subscribers only, in the spirit of classical Chinese medicine to restore and improve health, happiness, and harmony for All Under Heaven and Earth. Unless otherwise specified, the files contain the Chinese source text in a critical edition and my fairly literal translation, with more or less extensive footnotes. Forgive the bare-bones appearance of this page and always keep in mind that these are unpublished draft translations, intended for your personal use only. Please do not share or copy them without my permission (this is important!), and please do not use them for commercial purposes. If you want to cite any of my work or use it in your own teaching, just check with me and give me a chance to review my work. Some of these files are many years old.

If you do not find what you are looking for, always ask and I may either have it floating around on my computer or can produce it for you if I feel like it is relevant to other people as well. If it is for a personal research project, you can always hire me by the hour to produce any translations for you or help you with your own work.
