(p.87) Chapter 6 The Nineteenth-Century Synthesis in Confucian Learning
Neo-Confucian Self-Cultivation

Barry C. Keenan

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter follows the developments in Confucian learning during the nineteenth century. During this time, several of the new Qing dynasty academies followed the eighteenth-century emphasis on both new textual criticism, called evidential research, and ritual in their institutional precepts and in their curricula. Here the chapter marks a significant new synthesis of Confucian scholarship that can be considered the final culmination of Confucian ethics as taught and practiced in imperial times. This remarkable synthesis combined an emphasis on Han dynasty sources and philological erudition, often summarily termed Han Learning, with the moral cultivation of Song and Ming dynasty Neo-Confucianism usually simply termed Song Learning.

Keywords:   nineteenth-century China, Confucian learning, evidential research, Confucian ethics, Confucian scholarship, Han Learning, Song Learning
