Daniel K. Gardner, Dwight W. Morrow Professor of History, specializes in the intellectual and cultural history of pre–modern China. He received his A.B. from Princeton University and his Ph.D. from Harvard University.

His most recent books are The Four Books: The Basic Teachings of the Later Confucian Tradition (Hackett Publishing, 2007), and Zhu Xi's Reading of the Analects: Canon, Commentary, and the Confucian Tradition (Columbia University Press, 2003), an extended analysis of how -- and why -- different commentators over the centuries read the enormously influential text of the Analects differently.
