|Summary||Other notable Qing dynasty Neo-Confucians include Li Guangdi 李光地 (1642-1718), Hui Dong 惠棟 (1697-1758), and the philosophical historian Zhang Xuecheng 章學誠 (1738-1801). Three of the most influential Qing dynasty Neo-Confucians were active in both the late Ming and early Qing, and thus of ambiguous classification. These are the political reformers Huang Zongxi 黃宗羲 (1610-1695) and Gu Yanwu 顧炎武 (1613-1682) and the systematic philosopher Wang Fuzhi 王夫之 (1619-1692). (Note that Philpapers.org lists Wang Fuzhi under Song-Ming Neo-Confucianism.)|
|Key works||Huang Zongxi's major works are Waiting for the Dawn (Mingyi daifang lu 明夷待訪錄), which is translated by Wm Theodore de Bary (Columbia University Press, 1993) and The Records of the Ming Scholars (Mingru xue'an 明儒學案), translated in Julia Ching and Chaoying Fang's book of the same name (University of Hawaii Press, 1987). Philip J. Ivanhoe translates several of Zhang Xuecheng's writings in On Ethics and History: Essays and Letters of Zhang Xuecheng (Stanford University Press, 2009).|
|Introductions||Makeham 2010 includes two introductory chapters on Wang Fuzhi and Li Guangdi. Angle 2002 includes accessible discussions of Huang Zongxi and Gu Yanwu. Ivanhoe 2009 describes Zhang Xuecheng's philosophy of history.|
