520    "Recently discovered ancient silk and bamboo manuscripts 
       have transformed our understanding of classical Chinese 
       thought. In this book, Wang Zhongjiang closely examines 
       these texts, and by parsing the complex divergence between
       ancient and modern Chinese records reveals early Chinese 
       philosophy to be much richer and more complex than we ever
       imagined. As numerous and varied cosmologies sprang up in 
       this cradle of civilization, beliefs in the predictable 
       movements of nature merged with faith in gods and their 
       divine punishments. Slowly, powerful spirits and gods were
       stripped of their potency as nature's constant order 
       awakened people to the possibility of universal laws, and 
       from those laws was finally born an ideally conceived 
       community, objectively managed, and rationally ordered"--
