It is another important academic center of“Yang-Ming study”, which is after “Cheng-zhu Neo-Confucianism”. It is the last highlight of the Confucianism in the Song and Ming dynasties. On “the theory of human nature”, Wang Yang-ming believed that “the human nature” was not dated, and “the noumenon of the mind” was “the nature”. and there was nothing wrong with “the nature”. Evil was the human whose heart lost his essence. He reconstructed the theory of the human nature by disarming all kinds of barriers of the concept on “the theory of the human nature” with Chuang Tzu's theory of “all being one from the viewpoint of Tao”, citing the pure moral noumenon of Zen Buddhism, and basing his theory on Mencius' s “innate knowledge and innate ability”. Wang Yang-ming's theory of human nature was characterized by connectedness, inborn and naturalness.
