The Great Learning

The Great Learning (simplified Chinese: 大学; traditional Chinese: 大學; pinyin: Dà Xué)[1] was one of the "Four Books" in Confucianism. The Great Learning had come from a chapter in the Classic of Rites which formed one of the Five Classics. It consists of a short main text attributed to the teachings of Confucius and then ten commentary chapters accredited to one of Confucius' disciples, Zengzi. The ideals of the book were supposedly Confucius's; however the text was written after his death.
The "Four Books" were selected by the neo-Confucian Zhu Xi during the Song Dynasty as a foundational introduction to Confucianism and examinations for the state civil service in China.

“大学”
  《大学》原本是《礼记》中一篇,在南宋前从未单独刊印。传为孔子弟子曾参(前505年—前434年)作。自唐代韩愈、李翱维护道统而推崇《大学》(与《中庸》),至北宋二程百般褒奖宣扬,甚至称“《大学》,孔氏之遗书而初学入德之门也”,再到南宋朱熹继承二程思想,便把《大学》从《礼记》中抽出来,与《论语》、《孟子》、《中庸》并列,到朱熹撰《四书章句集注》时,便成了《四书》之一。按朱熹和宋代另一位著名学者程颐的看法,《大学》是孔子及其门徒留下来的遗书,是儒家学派的入门读物。所以,朱熹把它列为“四书”之首。
