In view of the deficiency of holistic study on English translation of Chinese classics and the present holistic study covering a too wide range, it’s few to discuss the integral thinking path schema of English Translation for Chinese Classics. Here, it’s necessary to carry out thinking path schema study of English translation for Chinese Classics in an overall view by some detailed examples. Through the methods of analyzing and comparing the cases in English versions of The Analects by Hongming Gu, James Legge and Guozhen Wu, it summarizes all process elements involved into the thinking path of translating Chinese Classics into English from general macro angle, in the supplementary sublimation of translation integrants from Partial Translation Theory by Holmes. That naturally deduces and extracts the possible existed interactive relationship among translators, source language, target language and the recipients. And it proposes universal applied thinking path schema of English translation for Chinese Classics in order to be referred for translation education, practices and studies.
