Ta-Tsi Chen (1886-1983), the first president at the reestablished National Chengchi University in Taiwan as well as the first director of the Confucius- Mencius Society in Taipei, dedicates all his life in culture and education. Chen is knowledgeable of Eastern and Western cultures: he focuses on learning psychology and logics from the West in the beginning of his academic life, then Hetuvidya in India, and in the later part of his life, he turns to study Confucianism, which includes thoughts of Confucius, Mencius, and Xunzi. After he establishes theories on Xunzi and Confucius, Ta-Tsi Chen writes The Record of Questions Waiting to Be Solved about Mencius (Mengzi daijie lu), and thus Mencius becomes the last important part of Chen's study of Confucianism. This paper aims to examine theory on human nature and the part ＂waiting to be solved＂ in order to understand the main point of Ta-Tsi Chen's thought as well as rethink the value of Mencius' thoughts.
