Wei Xang-Shu, a famous honest Confucian and Neo-Confucian in the reign of Shunzhi and Kangxi, advocated many concrete proposals about public policy substantiating the doctrine of Confucianism. He concerned these issues: what is the best way of a monarch, what is a competent minister, how to device an educational system teaching proper propriety, ceremony and justice and how to cultivate a philosopher who can integrate cultivating character with managing family, state and the world.
He concentrated on Neo-Confucianism rather than Ontology being extremely mysterious, empty and abstruse. He respected truth and concrete learning, and practiced in accordance with what he preaches.
He emphasized these moral convictions: esteeming the natural law and reducing One's selfishness, not to deceive oneself, respecting the sincerity and appreciation for the whole creation, and learning what one has learnt repeatedly.
Throughout his life, he though highly of his reputation, morality and justice. He realized his profound Neo-Confucian accomplishment and Confucian character in political policy. With honest character, great capability of accomplishing things and keeping bright administrative achievement, he deserves the most excellent official paragon in the early Qing Dynasty.
