This essay focuses on Dai Zhen (1724-1777)’s relation to Zhu Xi (1130-1200). It demonstrates why it is most reasonable to take Dai Zhen as an ideal example of the Ming-Qing intellectual shift of emphasis in Neo-Confucianism from the moral element (zun dexing) to the intellectual element (dao wenxue). It further argues that this shift made it perfectly legitimate for Dai Zhen, a philosophical follower of Zhu Xi, to be at the same time philologically critical of him.

Keywords:   Dai Zhen, Zhu Xi, Neo-Confucianism, Kaozheng, gewu, zhizhi, zhixing heyi, li
