The Dialectical Concept of "Subject-object" of Wang Fu-chih

Philosophy and Culture 30 (1):145-166 (2003)

"Can", "the" is Buddhism, Consciousness, especially after a pair of commonly used on the concept, and Wang Chuan-shan use "can", "the" two words, to give the side is different from Buddhist thought and discussion, also showing a relatively The special "to the concept." Chuanshan "can the concept", but in terms of what "could", "the" equal emphasis; However, the implementation of the epistemological discussion, the discourse is more important than understanding the right things, as above; that " able, "" the, "compared to the focus on Chuanshan no peace," the "on, and actively dealing with their objective reality. Nevertheless, it does not that mean Chuanshan that "can" after "the" and there, but only that the so-called "knowledge", but as the understanding of the subject, "can", go to the same objective things "are." Chuanshan this "real worship" the realist view, but according to their "honesty" as the center, "The World" as the ideological foundation in care, and its criticism of Buddhism, therefore, is not from an outside standpoint of Confucian results. The dialectical concept "Perceiver-perceived" is a concept, which the Consciousness-only-school in Buddhism often refers to. However, Wang Fu-chih's interpretation offers another aspect for this dialectical concept. For Wang Fu-chih, the perceiver is as important as the perceived; however, epistemologically speaking, Wang seems to pay more attention to the objective reality of the object. This does not mean that in the process of perception, the object takes priority over the subject but only that the object has its own objectivity. The "realistic" epistemological approach of Wang Fu-chih is based on his emphasis on "Sincerity", which is the foundation for social practice. Wang's criticism on Buddhism is also based on the same standpoint
