A Study On Wang Yang Ming's Ideas of Knowledge and Practice
The awareness that Wang Yang-ming wanted to refer to is not the 'Awareness' refering to knowledge. It was only awareness to realize the subjectivity inherent to oneself. He tried to accord 'Awareness' inherent to myself with 'Practice' and pull it outside to the extent possible. In conclusion, he wanted to say Zhi-xing-heyi
Wang Yangming's Zhi reveals the position of spiritualism. His position of 'Xin-ji-Li' It can be said that he regarded the relation of 'Zhi' with 'Xing' and inherent. The natural principle that Wang yang-ming meant is not Providence. It is to correct my mind that is getting wrong thoroughly with my own mind. Wang Yangming thoroughly regarded Zhi as moral nature.
Moreover, Wang Yangming's means 'seeking Perfect Virtue Natural Principles and Staying from Human Desires.'
Wang Yangming's Liang-zhi means that my mind is exactly, self-made knowledge and knowledge of distinguishing right and wrong, not epistemological knowledge. In order to reach such Liang-zhi, one should make efforts to learn. One should learn how righteousness where one is not seen or heard. The method of Zhi-Liang-zhi means that one should assiduously train one's mind so that one can overcome bad desires in daily life.
Wang Yangming regarded sincerity that makes one's mind true at the moment when there is virtue and vice and right mind that corrects wrong mind as the stage of Liang-zhi formed. He asserted that one can reach Zhi-Liang-zhi through gaining a perfect knowledge of natural laws only after undergoing such stages.
Wang Yangming, 'Awareness' is the beginning of 'Practice' and 'Practice' means for man to be man and it is what one should do that arises from the relations with other existences. In other words, he tried to resolve the matters of ethics and laws, which are not thought to be a unilateral matter of "Awareness, but thought to be a matter into which 'Awareness; and Practice' are combined. After all, it can be said that if 'Awareness' is 'Fact', then 'Practice' is 'What one should do.' 'practice' takes place while implementing 'Awareness', from which 'New Awareness' arises. Wang Yangming wanted to say that 'Awareness' in this continuous interlocking precess is 'True Awareness.'
