Abstract

In-depth research of the scope of meaning of the term shenming is essential for the better understanding of several important ancient Chinese texts and the ancient Chinese thinking. One of the recently discovered texts, in which the term appears in cosmogonical context, has made it more obvious for us. Altough former studies threw light on several meanings of the term, I will demonstrate that on the basis of the ancient Chinese written sources (including both transmitted and recently discovered texts) we can explore even more extensively the scope of meaning of the term shenming, and we are able to determine some of its previously unknown connotations.
