The theory of evil in Confucian tradition is rarely discussed in the past. Among the rare discussion, Renpu (Schemata of Humanity) by Late Ming scholar Liu Jishan could be regarded as the main focal point. In this case, some may misunderstand that theory of evil by Liu is an exceptional example in Confucianism, even misunderstand that the problem of evil is over-optimistically neglected by Confucian thinkers. The primary purposes of this paper are to point out: First, both Wang Yangming and Liu Jishan hold the standpoint that li and qi are good in its origin, and the occurrence of evil could only be attributed to its corruptive outflow. Second, regarding the issue of “the origin of evil” and “the method of conquering evil”, Liu has carried forward the discussion by Wang. By so doing, the aims of this paper are to enrich our understanding of the theory of evil in Liu Jishan’s (even Confucian) philosophy, also to help us reconsidering the relationship between li-qi, li-yu, shan-e.
