Xiong Shili ç†ŠååŠ› (1885-1968) once presented a two-level ti-yong é«”ç”¨ (the ontological and the phenomenal) system in the early 1920s. It was precisely based on this two-level ti-yong system that his philosophical system was increasingly established later. Therefore, the illumination of this two-level ti-yong system contributes to our better understanding of Xiongâ€™s whole philosophical thought. Unfortunately, till now there has not been any other scholar who has noticed this part of Xiongâ€™s thought. Based on Weishixue gailun å”¯è˜å¸æ¦‚ è«– (A General Account of YogÄcÄra Learning), a monograph Xiong published in 1923, this chapter introduces his two-level ti-yong system in detail, analysing his conception of the tiyong conceptual polarity and pointing out the source of his thought, with the purpose of comprehending Xiongâ€™s ti-yong philosophical system more accurately.
