Sample text

On the one hand, Hui Yuan tried to reconcile Buddhist practice with traditional Chinese culture; on the other, he insisted that Buddhist monk should not follow the ritual of bowing to the emperor. During the Southern and Northern Dynasties, there were two attempts to extinguish Buddhism for different reasons, not excluding the cultural conflicts. ”10 By the Tang Dynasty, quite a few prime ministers and advisers had criticised Buddhism from the point of view of traditional Confucianism (such as On Buddhism written by Han Yu).

Conservatives, represented by Xiong Shili, Feng Youlan and He Lin, also achieved something substantial. Xiong laid out his philosophical system in New Realism, laying the ground for modern Chinese Neo-Confucianism; Feng not only wrote his influential A Short History of Chinese Philosophy, but also produced Six Chapters on Zhenyuan, using Platonic philosophy and neorealist methodology; He Lin applied his profound knowledge of German classical philosophy to explain Chinese philosophy, and expounded further on Lu and Wang’s School of Mind in his On Modern Spiritualism and Review of the Unity of Knowledge and Action.

Mencius was determined to follow Confucius’ paradigm by eulogizing and faithfully following the rulings of Yao and Shun. As it is recorded in the Records of the Grand Historian, “when the strategy of using the power of vertical and horizontal alliances of states with the state of Qin as the pivot” was practiced, Mencius advocated the virtues of the Xia, Shang and Zhou dynasties, which did not suit the needs of those states. He then went back his hometown, together with Wan Zhang, and set out to compile Odes and The Book Classic History, to elucidate Confucius’ doctrine.
