Discuss one approach to understanding the “self” either in Zhu Xi or Wang Yangmi
Discuss one approach to understanding the “self” either in Zhu Xi or Wang Yangming’s writings based on the relevant chapters in Confucian Moral Self-Cultivation or in the Daodejing readings of week 6. You are expected to read the entry on Zhu Xi or Wang Yangming or Laozi in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Religion for further research on this topic as needed. Readings: “Chapter 4: Zhu Xi;” and “Chapter 5: Wang Yangming,” in Confucian Moral Self-Cultivation (Indianapolis: Hackett Publishing, 2000), 43-58, 59-74; Phillip J. Ivanhoe, translation, “Chapters 1-5,” in The Daodejing of Laozi, 1-5.
