This essay is a critical review of Edward T. Ch’ien’s Chiao Hung and the Restructuring of Neo-Confucianism in the Late Ming (1986). After a re-studying of Jiao Hong’s basic writings as well as other related texts of the late Ming period, this review points out how and why Ch’ien’s depiction of the life and thought of this important late Ming intellectual is more than problematic. Ch’ien is seen to be asking phenomenological-structuralist questions of Jiao Hong’s texts, not placing them in their historical context, and thus misrepresenting or distorting what the author actually said in these texts.

Keywords:   Edward T. Ch’ien, kaozheng, Neo-Confucianism, Buddhism, Sanjiao heyi, liangzhi, shixin jianxing, Jiao Hong
