Exploring the Xunzi's Theory on Ethics

WANG Guang-hui(Institute of Philosophy,Anhui Academy of Social Sciences,Hefei 230053,China)  
Xunzi's theory on ethics is totally different from Confucian and Mencius ethical thoughts.Xunzi was one of the three great early architects of Confucian philosophy.In reaction to some of the other thinkers of his time,he articulated a systematic version of Confucianism that encompasses ethics,metaphysics,political theory,philosophy of language,and a highly developed philosophy of education.Xunzi is known for his belief that ritual is crucial for reforming humanity's original nature.He focused on humanity's part in creating the roles and practices of an orderly society,and gave a much smaller role to Heaven or Nature as a source of order or morality than most other thinkers of the time.It becomes ethicized into a kind of power or charisma that anyone who cultivated virtue and followed the Way developed.Xunzi,while still believing in the efficacy of rule through moral force,was not quite as optimistic,which was likely related to his view on human nature.
