Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Doing Good and Ridding Evil in Ming China: The Political Career of Wang Yangming contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, a list of maps, and abbreviations. The eminent Ming dynasty (1368-1644) philosopher Wang Yangming 王陽明 (1472-1529) wrote a letter to a student early in 1518 just prior to sending troops into settlements located in northern Guangdong Province. All of the notions of human nature, good and evil, theory and practice, and the oneness of all things not only represent important elements of Wang Yangming's much-studied philosophy, but also had important and serious implications for his less fully studied political career.

Keywords: eminent Ming dynasty; northern Guangdong Province; Wang Yangming
