The mentality of Tang Dynasty literati in the course of their self-realization as reflected in Zuan Yi Ji
Zuan Yi Ji
mentality of literati
This paper used Zuan Yi Ji by Li Mei in an attempt to sort out the course of self-realization in Tang Dynasty literati, the demand and expectation of the society on them. First, in terms of the journey for literati to realize self-value, Li Mei thought that having excellent insight of history would enable one to enter the core of power and use the political power (might) to achieve “altruistic” duty which is also the value of life of a literati. But in the real world, Li Wei was trapped in the predicament of failing the imperial examinations and power struggle in the government, unable to escape and totally lost his opportunity of entering upon an official career .and had to research on the meaning of life. Second, in terms of the way of explanation of his meeting difficulties in life, Li Mei thought that his repeated failure in the imperial examinations was due to the domination of the examinations by political group with deviated value. Therefore, after giving up his intention in the official career, Li Mei tried to stay home and started to pay close attention to the religious explanation of life and look for the value of life of man.
