Abstract: On the relationship between literature and Tao,Zhu Xi puts forward the new viewpoint that "literature springs from Tao"in correspondence to the former mainstream viewpoints that"literature manifests Tao"and "literature runs through Tao". The two propositions have little difference in words but are sharply divergent in essence. "Literature springing from Tao"stands more firmly in the position of principle and more emphasizes the unification of literature and Tao,which is the reflection of philosophical thought of "unity in diversity"in the field of literature. It expands science and constrains literature while uplifting the prose study in some way. The emergence of paradigm of literature and Tao which seems to be perfect and comprehensive in theory but with the inevitable contradiction marks an important ending of traditional literature and Tao theory.
