This article focuses on Confucius' Jen and Lao Tzu's Tao, the ultimate reality in their respective philosophies, and argues that the philosophers in Early China invented a special mode of thinking. That is, by emphasizing a person's will to seek after it, they turned the seemingly untouchable ultimate reality into the way to it wisely. It is also interesting for us to notice that this mode of thinking turns out to be very similar to that of modern natural science.
