On the Practical Nature of Wang Yangming's Philosophy and Its Influence on the Village Convention

Yang Liangjun;Feng Shuying;  
As one of the most influential thinkers in Chinese history,Wang Yangming's philosophical system is not only a creative reflection of thoughts and theories,but a direct description of physical and mental cultivation and moral practice. He inherited and carried forward the Confucian tradition of "Nei-Sheng-Wai-Wang", and advocated that the purpose of curing social malady and reconstructing social order should be realized in the internal unity of ethical culture and moral practice. The practical character of Wang Yangming's theory is demonstrated through his creative interpretation of the process of "mind is ration","Investigating Things to Extend Knowledge(Ge-Wu-Zhi-Zhi)" and "Theory to Practice". Under the influence of the practical character of Wang Yangming's theory, the doctrine of Confucius and Mencius is no longer the patent of those who possess power,but becomes the thinking model and common sense of life that every member of society could have. While affirming the practical value and significance of the moral practice of the common people,the practical character of his theory provided the theoretical support for the development of the practice of rural governance and the culture of village convention.
