Details
Motzu is a sage of China and a great personality of the world. His
religious thoughts, such as on the Will of Heav-en and Universal Love,
may be as highly respected as those of Jesus Christ; his political
theories, such as on Identifica- tion with the Superiors and
Identifition with the Elites, may be compared to those of Karl Marx; and
his scientific princi- ples, such as on Physics and Optics, may be
considered as advanced as those of Albert Einstein. Thus, Professor
Li- ang Chichao, one of the most prestigious contemporary Chi- nese
scholars, once said that Motzu is little Christ but a great Marx.

Preface
Motzu is a sage of China and a great personality of the world. His religious thoughts, such as on the Will of Heav- en and Universal Love, may be as highly respected as those of Jesus Christ; his political theories, such as on Identifica- tion with the Superiors and Identifition with the Elites, may be compared to those of Karl Marx; and his scientific princi- ples, such as on Physics and Optics, may be considered as advanced as those of Albert Einstein. Thus, Professor Li- ang Chichao, one of the most prestigious contemporary Chi- nese scholars, once said that Motzu is little Christ but a great Marx.
When I was a young boy, I was very much influenced by Confucianism and I had terrible impression about Motzu. For Mencius, the great disciple of Confucius used to criticize Motzu by saying that Motzu, like Yangchu who despised the rulers and parents, was actually as rude like an animal.
It was 1949, when I moved to Hong Kong. There I met two distinguished scholars: Professor Su Shueling, an ex- pert on Chinese literature and Western mythology, and Fr. Gabriel Allegra, a Biblical scholar who translated the entire Bible into modern Chinese. Due to their inspiration and en- couragement, I began to study the complete works of Mot- zu. Twenty years of hard work later, I had completed both my master thesis and doctoral dissertation on different as- pects of Moism.
Historically speaking, Motzu passed away more than 20 centuries ago. During this period, his works have been al- most unknown in the West, and even in China, only a few scholars paid attention to him and his works.
