Abstract: Li Guangdi (1642-1718) was a devotee of the Cheng-Zhu Confucianism in early Qing China. At the core of Li?s philosophy of self-cultivation are two fundamental and interrelated concepts of jing (reverence/respect) and yi (justice/righteousness) that inspire and guide much of one?s conduct in the quotidian life. This thesis analyzes these two ideas and Li reinterpreted jing to mean jieju (vigilance with apprehension), which is critical in controlling one?s mind and regulating one?s thought. In contrast, ju (as an emotion) functions as a kind of restraint which helps to manage one?s emotions as apprehension works as a constant reminder and compels one to act thoughtfully and to remain vigilant. Through the discussion of Li?s concepts of jing and yi, this thesis shows that even though Li was a devout follower of Cheng-Zhu's teachings, he also sought to expand and to interpret Confucianism in his own way in the early Qing period.
