Does anyone here know if Clausewitz (a prussian military who wrote "on war") knew of Tsun Zi's "art of war"? Or is his book based on own expierences which would have basically confirmed the theory of Tsun Zi then? (talk) 17:47, 27 June 2013 (UTC)


The book is found in 1972? How the book had been translated 1772?

You misread the part about 1972. JOJ Hutton 12:35, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Sun Bin "Art of war" is found in 1972 ,but Sunzi is found earlier and it's been translated?

From the character of a significant portion of this article's subsection headings and the text therein, it appears that if one were to wear a tee-shirt with The Art of War stenciled on it while being filmed or televised during any street theatre performance, one would have met the Pokémon test for inclusion in this article.

Deleted as not really a notable link, might be a case of WP:SELFPROMOTION.  White Whirlwind  咨  13:09, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
The site compares such notable translations as Griffith's, Cleary's, Ames' which is important for those wanting to know more about those translations. Besides why would Sonshi be notable and Science of Strategy Institute not?--2606:A000:7D44:100:F5CF:ADA6:7750:E418 (talk) 11:49, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
