Si Ku Quan Shu Zong Mu is the first book using terminologies of “Han-Xue” and “Sung-Xue” to comment previous academics. “Han-Xue” and “Sung-Xue” constitute the academic history of Ching dynasty and each predominated alternatively. During the mid-Ching dynasty the competition became more and more obvious because of the appearance of two books “Han School Shi Cheng Ji” by Jiang Fan and “Han School Shang Dui” by Fang Dong Shu. This argument resulted from the mid-Tung dynasty intellectualities' will to defend the pure tradition of Confucianism against heterodoxy. The scholars supporting Han-Xue thought that if intellectualities wanted to correct the impractical Neo-Confucianism during the late Ming and restore Confucianism, they had to explain the words in ancient books anew. However, the scholars supporting Sung-Xue thought extremely focusing on the ancient words would obscure the inner value of Confucianism. How did Ruan Yuan regarded as an authority on the Han-Xue by intellectualities comment Han-Xue and Sung-Xue? This essay shows that Ruan Yuan thought explanatory efficacy had active meanings to interpret Confucian thought through discussing his book - Yuan-Jing-Shi Corpus. By interpreting the ancient books anew, he emphasized that practicing morality is the only way to restore Confucianism. As Neo-Confucianism became more impractical and profound during the late Ming, Ruan Yuan gave the intellectualities in Ching Dynasty a pracitcal way to revival Confucian spirit..
