Abstract: The heaven-man conception of Confucianism experiences three phases in its development.The first phase includes the conception of universe in the Book of Changes,which then develops into the belief in Heaven and God and into the moralization of human being.The third phase begins with the theory of benevolence and righteousness of Confucius.The theme of Shang Shuis"moralization,"being the starting point and goal of political rule.Western political philosophy emphasizes dualism——the separation of heaven and man——at the metaphysical level,with the"theory of contract"as its political theory,which is different from Chinese theory of"moralization"in origin.
