Sample text

9 The second part of the definition seems to fit into our conventional understanding of what a Ru is supposed to be and it is also in line with the Zhouli’s description of Ru as a humble foot-soldier residing among the people as their teacher of six arts. As for the first part of the definition, it is not entirely clear how the word soft is correlated with the term ru. The correlation between ru and soft, construed by Xu Shen, a Han imperial scholar of the state academy, is paronomastic in nature, and the method of paronomasia has since then become the foundation of later scholars’ understanding of the meaning of ru.

In the Han, scholars in the imperial academy were selected on the basis of their expertise in at least one of the Classics, and in the Sui—a short-lived dynasty in the late sixth and early seventh century—the official position Rulinlang (Officer of Ru) was first set up to provide an illumination of the Classics. This official position of Ru as an expert of the Classics later was also adopted by the subsequent dynasties Yuan (1279–1368 CE), Ming (1368–1644 CE), and Qing (1644–1911 CE) as well. In other words, Ru and the learning of the Classics were inseparable in the dynastic perception of Ru.

In sum, he who possesses ren distinguishes himself from all others. Ren as a qualitative distinction of one’s own person can also be extrapolated from the “Taishi” chapter—a later forged “ancient text” of the “Books of Zhou”—in the Shujing (Book of Songs) where the determination of the Zhou tribe in overturning the corrupted Shang kingdom was recorded. “Although the King of Shang has thousands of thousands of common people under his rule, they are not in one mind with him, I [King Wu] only have ten ministers with me, but they are all in one mind with me.
