  Four Books - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Four Books of Confucianism (not to be confused with the Four Classics of Chinese literature) are Chinese classic texts that Zhu Xi selected, in the Song dynasty, as an introduction to Confucianism: the Great Learning, the Doctrine of the Mean, the Analects of Confucius, and the Mencius.
The purpose of this small, 23-chapter book is to demonstrate the usefulness of a golden way to gain perfect virtue.
The imperial examination, started in the Jin Dynasty and eventually abolished with the founding of the Republic of China, emphasized Confucian studies and expected candidates to quote and apply the words of Confucius in their essays.

 Four Books for Women
The Four Books for Women (2) were four types of educational material for women in Chinese feudal society -- the Admonitions for Women, the Women's Analects, the Domestic Lessons, and the Sketch of a Model for Women.
The Four Books for Women were specialized writings on the education of women; their objective lay in expounding the proper behavior for the female sex, the "three submissions" and the "four virtues" promoted by the Confucian school, in order to promote the "wise and worthy wives and good mothers" character model of feudal ideology.
These four spiritual bonds act as an extreme form of discrimination against and oppression of women without regard for their characters, stripping their thoughts and lives of autonomy and freedom, obliging them to follow the dictates of fate and the orders of parents and husband in everything.

 The Four Books on Architecture   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Palladio was not the first to publish a book illustrating principles of classical architecture but he was the most convincing.
Robert Tavernor and Richard Schofield's well written, carefully annotated scholarly, 1997 translation of Palladio's Four Books --the first new English translation since 1738-- from MIT Press is a pleasure to read for what it reveals much about both great principles and fine detail of classical design and construction practices.
The book's designers have really done brilliantly in finding the most suitable typefaces to match Palladio's original woodcuts and in choosing a size and format, down to the weight and colour of the paper, that makes these ideas handsome and vivid now.

 Confucian Documents
Although three of four of these books are traditionally attributed to Confucius (K'ung-tzu, 551-479 B.C.E.) it has been established that he did not write a single word of them; they were written down by his students after his death.
These works were put into their present form by Chu Hsi in the late twelfth century C.E. These four books were required reading in order to pass the civil service exminations, (started in 1315), which were the gateway to employment in the Imperial bureaucracy.
The second book in the Confucian canon, the Meng-tzu, is named after its author, also known as Meng K'o or Mencius (371-289 B.C.E.).
