Notes

  1. ^ Note that "Zi" (子; "Tzu" according to Wades-Giles spelling) was used as a suffix for the family name of a respectable man in ancient Chinese culture. In this case, "Zi" is not the personal name. It is a rough equivalent to "Sir" and is commonly translated into English as "Master".

    ^ Sun Tzu When the common soldiers are too strong and their officers too weak, the result is INSUBORDINATION. When the officers are too strong and the common soldiers too weak, the result is COLLAPSE. When the higher officers are angry and insubordinate, and on meeting the enemy give battle on their own account from a feeling of resentment, before the commander-in-chief can tell whether or no he is in a position to fight, the result is RUIN. -Sun Tzu The general who advances without coveting fame and retreats without fearing disgrace, whose only thought is to protect his country and do good service for his sovereign, is the jewel of the kingdom.

  • There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.
  • Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.

This article is about the military strategist Sun Tzu. For the mathematician of the same name, see Sun Tzu (mathematician).


Sun Tzu (544 BC – 496 BC) (孫子 pinyin: Sūn Zǐ) was a Chinese writer. He wrote The Art of War, a very famous book on military strategy (how to fight wars). He is also one of the earliest realists in international relations theory.

The name Sun Tzu is a title of honour given to Sun Wu (孫武, Sūn Wǔ), the author's name. The word Wu, meaning "martial" or "military", is same as the word in "wu shu" or "martial art". Sun Wu also has a courtesy name, Chang Qing (長卿, Cháng Qīng)
