Biography of the Day
Chow Tun-i
Neo-Confucianism may be traced to earlier Confucianists, but tin one who really opened its vista and determined its direction was Chow Tun-i (Chou Lien-hsi, 1017-1073), who is generally called the pioneer of Neo-Confucianism. In two short treatises, the T'ai-chi-t'u shuo (As Explanation of the Diagram of the Great Ultimate) and the T'ung-shn (Penetrating the Book of Changes), he laid the pattern of metaphysics and ethics for later Neo-Confucianism.
