   * The purpose of this reading group is to promote Chinese classics by creating an easy going environment for studying and discussing classical Chinese texts. The plan is to organise ERG in series, where each series covers a certain historical period. It is challenging to cover any Chinese historical period comprehensively with a few sessions. Therefore it is not what we should attempt here. What we want do here, is to lead people to read some selected representative historical stories and (fractions of) texts. So at the end of each series, hopefully our attendees can take home with a rough skeleton of the history, and some representative inventions/​thoughts/​texts/​people from the covered period. ​   * The purpose of this reading group is to promote Chinese classics by creating an easy going environment for studying and discussing classical Chinese texts.
