Most general studies of Neo-Confucianism focus on the leading thinkers of the Song (960 -1279) and Ming (1368 -1644) dynasties, such as the Cheng brothers (Cheng Hao and Cheng Yi), Zhu Xi, and Wang Yangming, with the dominant emphasis for these major figures being their key philosophical ideas as expressed in their various writings. What readers seldom get is a glimpse of how scholars struggled with putting their ideas into practice, as there are few extended first-hand accounts of anyone engaged in the daily pursuit of the Neo-Confucian goal of sagehood. One rare first-hand account of this struggle can be found in the journal of Wu Yubi (1392-1469), a New-Confucian scholar who lived in the early Ming dynasty. Wu Yubi documents his pursuit of sagehood in a diary containing over 300 entries, detailing his difficulties and progress while striving to put New-Confucian philosophical ideas into practice. The journal is also considered to be a rare instance of confessional literature in China before the sixteenth century. A useful introduction precedes Theresa Kellehers translation of Wu Yubis journal, offering a brief overview of Neo-Confucianism, the Ming Dynasty, and the life of Wu Yubi. The text also includes a list of Chinese dynasties, a pronunciation guide, map of Ming China, letters and miscellaneous writings from Wu Yubi's collected works, an additional section of comments on the journal by the translator, a glossary of peoples names, and a glossary of book titles.

M. Theresa Kelleher is Associate Professor of Asian Studies and World Religions at Manhattanville College.
