  • Abstract This study aims to probe into the development of Mencius Doctrine in the Tang Dynasty, with the Classical Prose Movement (Gu Wen Yun Dong) in the Tang Dynasty as the compass, and to analyze the meanings and the characteristics of Mencius Doctrine in the Classical Prose Movement in the Tang Dynasty, so as to elucidate the thriving Mencius Doctrine in the Song Dynasty. Through the discussion on Mencius Doctrine’s development via the angles of politics, Confucianism, religion, as well as literature, this essay acknowledges the efforts of the pioneers of Classical Prose Movement in Ming Tao (to illuminate the Tao) and Zong Jing (to revere the classics of Confucianism). These pioneers forcefully defended the traditional orthodoxy and were keen to promote those with potential. They therefore revived Confucianism and recalled the scholars to the values of traditional Confucianism. Thus, we will review the growth of Mencius Doctrine in Classical Prose Movement via three distinctive philosophies: the theory of “Width” Han Yu inherited, the theory of “Depth” Li Ao developed, and the theory of “Reason” Liu, Zong-yuan innovated. In addition, we will depict the development of Mencius Doctrine’s annotations in the Tang Dynasty as research methods changed from exegesis on a textual basis to elucidation of arguments within. Last but not least, through the reverence for the scholars leading Classical Prose Movement by the scholars in the late Tang Dynasty and in the Song Dynasty, we will sum up the influences that the Classical Prose Movement in the Tang Dynasty had on Confucian Orthodoxy, Theory of Mind, and the change of research methods, and finally conclude the certainty, suitability, and practicality of Mencius Doctrine’s development in the Tang Dynasty.
