Yang Chu (fl. c.450 BCE). Early Chinese philosopher. He seems to have taught a doctrine of self-preservation in opposition to hedonism. No complete work of his survives, but he is often referred to in later works such as Lü-shih ch'un ch'iu (Mr Lü's Springs and Autumns), which may preserve authentic fragments from his writings or sayings.
