Abstract

   Ming-ju hsueh-an, Huang Tsung-hsi took Zhou Ru-deng as the disciple of Lo Ju-fang and put the former into T’ai-chou hsueh-an. Almost all the researchers at home and abroad always take Huang’s formulation for granted and do not probe this question. Based on many original historical documents, this study will inspect and testify it was a pseudo morph to clarify Zhou Ru-deng into T’ai–chou School and point out that Zhou Ru-deng should be regarded as the disciple of Wang Chi and clarified into Che-chung School, whatever the element of region, intellectual continuity and self-identification were taken into consideration. Furthermore, this study will analysis why Huang Tsung-hsi deviated from the truth of the intellectual history. According to this study, As Huang Tsung-hsi compiled Ming-ju hsueh-an, the criticism that the teaching of Wang Yang-ming was or combined with Chan Buddhism was prevailing everywhere. Huang put Zhou into the T’ai-chou school just in order to make a distinction between the teaching of Wang Yang-ming and Chan Buddhism. As a result, the construction of Huang not only distorted the School belonging of Zhou Ru-deng, but also cut off the intellectual genealogy in Zhejiang Province from Wang Yang-ming via Wang Chi to Zhou Ru-deng. Because Ming-ju hsueh-an was taken as a basic original document of Confucian intellectual history of the Ming, and the School clarification of it has been used as the ground of now academic research, it is necessary to reflect and probe the problem of it so as to give a right starting point for our further study.
