Xunzi, born in the later period of the Warring States period, is a follower of Confucius school of thought whose goal is ＂to assist the sovereign, to follow the law of Yin and Yang, and to promote civilization through education.＂ Xunzi celebrates the Confucian benevolent virtues as exemplified by the great sage king during his interview with the king of Zhao Xiaocheng (趙孝成王), which is later recorded in the article of ＂Yibin(議兵).＂ This paper will explore the relationship of ＂Yibin＂ and Confucius school of thought as in ＂Confucius sanchoji (孔子三朝記)＂ and ＂Yanbin (用兵).＂ Xunzi in his life time travels and stays in Jixia (稷下) for many years, influenced by several military books collected by local scholars, and especially attracted to Liantao (六韜). The purpose of this article is to examine how Xunzi builds his military theory as showcased in ＂Yibin (議兵)＂ on the basis of Qi-Lu political thinking and culture such as in ＂Yanbin＂ and Liantao.
