講座內容 About the Lecture


After the reign of Jiaqing and Daoguang, a couple of eminent Confucianist scholars gradually disagreed on the discussions of Yin 隱 (implicit) and Xian 顯 (explicit). The basis of knowledge pursuit also started to waver. Different interpretations already appeared for questions like ‘what is knowledge’, ‘what is Confucianism’, and ‘what is China’.
