I actually think that the 'moral grammar' described in those works is closer to Yangming's Liangzhi. Not that Yangming wasn't just expanding on the Mencian point, but I think that given Yangming's importance to New Confucianism, I do think the distinction is worth making.

Hi Sam -- I haven't read that one of De Waal's books, but in earlier work he actually does cite and reflect on Mencius, remarkably enough.
