Mo Zi or Early Mohist Text. ENGLISH - CHINESE (GB)
 
Mo Zi. The founder of the Mohist school. Roughly contemporaneous with Confucius.

OTHER SOURCES:

The Wesleyan Chinese Philosophical Etext Archive--Pre-Qin Texts has the following files:
- Selected Mohist Doctrine chapters.

Here is a Table of Contents from the complete Mo Zi (i.e., including sections from both the Early Mohists and the Bie Mo).

For an introduction, Burton Watson's partial translation is useful:
Basic Writings of Mo Tzu, Hsun Tzu, and Han Fei Tzu Burton Watson (Editor) / Hardcover / Published 1967.

A complete, and also rather hard to find, translation is:
- Motse, the Neglected Rival of Confucius Mei Yi-Pac / Published 1976

Other Links related to the Mo Zi:

John Knoblock has some information on his Classical Chinese Philosophy site:
- An introduction to the philosophy of Mo Di.

 

Bie Mo or Neo-Mohists. ENGLISH - CHINESE (GB)
 
Bie Mo or Neo-Mohists. They developed the doctrines in the Early Mohists, introducing into the philosophical environment what has been called fascinating logical and scientific thought.

OTHER SOURCES:

The Xiao-qu chapter (or "Lesser Pick") of the Mo Zi.

The Wesleyan Chinese Philosophical Etext Archive--Pre-Qin Texts has the following files:
- Mohist Canons, as reconstructed by A. C. Graham.
- Unreconstructed Daqu.
- Unreconstructed Xiaoqu.

The best and most extensive study on the Later Mohists is:
- Graham, A.C. 1978, Later Mohist Logic, Ethics and Science, The Chinese University Press, Hong Kong.
Unfortunately this has long been out of print and is rather hard to get.
