Enter into the world of Sunzi?s Art of War, where the rival kings of classical China battled for supremacy. In this course we analyze the Art of War and other texts of the Warring States period (5th-3rd centuries BCE) to understand the development of warfare, the art of rhetoric, and the ethical codes and practical strategies of politics. We also engage in a simple multi-player strategy game that will test your ability to practice classical Chinese tactics and the persuasive arts. Can you conquer all of China? Your throne awaits.
