Hsün Tzu is a very important figure in Pre-Ch’in Confucian School, and is most fomous for his claim that “human nature is evil.” About the studies of Hsün Tzu, American scholars of Chinese Studies have made great contributions. Nevertheless, for centuries American scholars in the study of Hsün Tzu did not explore much about his theory of human nature. However, for the works published in the states, we could see that American scholars attempted to explore the text of “Xing E” (human nature is evil) chapter or analyze and interpret the theory of human nature. Hence, these works would benefit our studies of Hsün Tzu’s theory of human nature. The objects which this paper was going to discuss were those works written in English and published by scholars who taught and researched in America. My paper was to explore some representative works, to evaluate the research results contributed by scholars in America, and to expound the possible research orientation in the future.
