Abstract

This essay argues that the idea of name-rectification (zheng ming chinese source) in the Xunzi can be properly reconstructed as revealing a normative pragmatic semantic theme that linguistic contents embody, and are embedded in, the normative, justificatory network, or pattern, of dao li chinese source (proper routes/patterns of norm) which, in turn, is constituted and manifested by social inferential justificatory practices of bian shuo chinese source (dialectical justification/explanation).
