The ambiguity of yi in the Xunzi highlights two features of the nature of broad-sense moral norms embodied in the text. This paper, by examining traditional exegeses and reconsidering recent interpretations by scholars of both East and West, proposes that yi in different contexts of Xunzi are rendered as rules of conduct or principles as well as certain kind of personal moral ability. The coexistence of these features manifests the emphasis of not only the value of moral tradition but also personal moral ability, which is necessary to moral tradition. This attempt seeks to pave the way for future developments of moral theories based on the Xunzi.
