Moderator introduction:

Prince Yuan

Fordham accounting graduate students are reading. I usually like to browse all kinds of books and dream of becoming an encyclopedic figure. In addition to reading, there are two other hobbies in life - sports and cooking. The body is always the capital of the revolution, and only cooking can make a connotation. The ultimate goal of life - to get the hall, get the kitchen.

Taiji diagram

The Taiji diagram says that there are more than two hundred crosses, but it lays the essence of the science of science. Author Zhou Dunyi, the Northern Song Dynasty Tianzhu years. The most important historical event in the Song Zhenzong period was the change of Wang Anshi, and also an important moment in the Northern Song Dynasty. At the same time, in the history of literature, this period is also the period of "science". Many people now blame the humiliation of modern Chinese history on Cheng Zhu Li Xue. This is a very questionable view. Although Zhu Xi’s philosophy of science was born out of the second journey, many of them have not been generalized. Secondly, the reason why Neo-Confucianism flourished at that time was that compared with Confucianism in the late Tang Dynasty, Neo-Confucianism was a new and innovative trend of thought. It represented this kind of progressive and transformative thinking at the time. So what does this have to do with the Taiji Diagram?
Before the rise of Neo-Confucianism, the Confucianists of the Song Dynasty inherited the Confucianism of the Tang Dynasty. After all, they could not get rid of the insurmountable gap between the civilian aristocracy. (The Tang Dynasty family forces still hold the way of learning, until the Song Dynasty and the history of Fang Xing. Because after the late Tang Dynasty The martial arts ruling the ruling family and killing the family. The civilian forces finally looked up and laid a good foundation for the imperial examination. In the early Song Dynasty, the culture and education were weak, and although Zhao Pu’s half-word theory was a moment of beauty, it could not conceal the weakness of culture and education at that time. The king of the Northern Song Dynasty claimed to be the "official family" because his world was acquired from the late Zhou Chai. Most of the emperors of the Northern Song Dynasty came from the Five Dynasties, and the king was not as embarrassed as the ministers. Moreover, this world has not come right. In order to avoid such incidents, the Song Dynasty emperor has formulated two basic national policies: the first to guard against the martial arts, and the second to rule the world with the literati. In the period of the Zhenzong period, Wu Bei was lax, redundant, and redundant officials were urgent. If the emperor wants to solve these two problems, he must change the basic national policy. In traditional Confucianism, this is tantamount to denying that the ancestors' work is unfilial and disrespectful. Therefore, it is necessary to reinterpret Confucianism as a service for reform and reform. Neo-Confucianism came into being.
The above clarifies the inevitability of historical politics to promote physiology. Next, I will talk about the inevitability of the birth of the science of thought. The ancient Chinese movement in the Tang Dynasty promoted the study of the two Han dynasties but there was no breakthrough insight. In the late Tang Dynasty, Confucianism was greatly affected by the two Buddhist and Taoist schools. Buddhism began to localize. In particular, the Zen sects created by Xuan Zang Master and the Zen ancestors of the Sixth ancestor Hui Neng have injected new life into the Chinese ideological community. Neo-Confucianism has a lot to learn from Zen and wisdom, but can't the Zen view be copied from Zen? Within the Confucian system, the closest to the system of knowledge (micro and macro) is the Zhouyi system. The so-called easy to heaven and earth, and there are: the saints view the easy to set up, watch the shackles and set the device. Another cloud: Da Yuan Yuan, all things began with Shun Chengtian (three sentences are from the source of ten wings). Therefore, the cultivation of Neo-Confucianism is Zen-style, and "Negger" is a matter of mind (from the self and the heart, to observe the heart of the world). The world view is the "outside" of the Zhouyi system (from small to big, from a glimpse of foreign objects). It can be said that science is a Zen monk born in a Taoist cloak of Confucianism. Pursuing a heart and a thing, when you learn, you will no longer have a valuable distinction. Finally, Wang Yangming transformed this layer of science into a mind. The famous "end tea boy" allusion is the best interpretation of the "one heart and one dollar" in science.
Taiji was only available in the Song Dynasty. It is said that a pure Yangzi Lu Dongbin of the late Tang Dynasty was passed to Chen Yu (also known as Mr. Xi Yi). Chen Hao's ancestors pioneered the "promise of life Tai Chi". Few people who don't practice the Tao know Chen Hao, but his students are famous. Shao Yong, the word coward, is a student of the Fukang Festival. Shao Yong is the person who brings the "extraordinary style" of science to the extreme. On the basis of the Taiji diagram, he explained the two maps of Heluo and played the "Emperor of the Emperor." Therefore, the Taiji diagram says that the status in the school is also very respectful.
