Abstract

Arguing that it is impossible to assess validly a thinker's greatness without studying the work of his or her predecessors and contemporaries, Lynn A. Struve reexamines the thought and scholarship of the prominent Chinese intellectual and political activist Huang Zongxi. Within this broader context Huang can be seen as someone who brought to fruition various approaches to scholarship that had been gestating since the late sixteenth century. Struve suggests that his role was more of a culminator than an instigator of ideas and more of an advocate of viewpoints that did not long survive the late Ming than a "pioneering ancestor" of scholarly trends in the Qing.
