On Ethics and History
Stanford University Press

This chapter presents the English translation of a letter written by Zhang to Zhu Cangmei, which not only describes Zhang's own course of learning and specific advice to his young protégé but also an analysis of how people in general should pursue an understanding of the dao. Zhang self-consciously modeled his composition on a justly famous letter from Han Yu to his student Li Yi. But Zhang uses the occasion to review and apply some of the central claims of his general philosophical view.

Keywords:   Zhang Xuecheng, letters, correspondence, dao
