The Neo-Confucian school (daoxue) served as a ‘modern’, self-consciously hybrid attempt to invigorate Confucianism as a philosophical tradition and to protect China against foreign invasion. Two of the great Neo-Confucian masters were Zhuxi and Wang Yangming, who lived centuries apart and disagreed on some fundamantal issues. For this fourth and final paper option, your task is to write a letter from either Zhuxi or Wang Yanming to one of the following 7 Chinese ‘masters’: Confucius (Kongzi), Mencius (Mengzi), Mozi, Laozi (assuming he was real, for now), Zhuangzi, Fazang, or Huineng (the Sixth Patriarch). You may include a reply, as well. Be critical, and be creative, but don’t write things that would be uncharacteristic of any of these figures. And be sure to cite your references!
