|Abstract||Shuming has been proclaimed the forerunner of Contemporary Neo-Confucianism. However, assessing Liangâs identity appears a much more complicated task. Taking a closer look at his copious writings on religion, this paper shows how Liang conceived the role of religion at the different steps of humanityâs quest. Applying this frame of understanding to twentieth century China, Liang saw a discrepancy between the task required in our present time and what the future was holding. Therefore, while he engaged the world in a certain way, he was still holding privately another belief. This secret of Liang reshuffles traditional boundaries between the secular and transcendence|
