While specifically, what is the role of Yi-ology on the development of Neo-Confucianism, how did Yi-ology affect Neo-Confucianism on its cosmology、mind/heart-ology、axiology、practice theory, what is the significance for the ideology and values of Neo-Confucianism, and what is the specific idea among Neo-Confucianists. On the other hand, how did Neo-Confucianism affect Yi-ology and other classic theories. The series of issues has not been researched thoroughly, and some of the fields have even not been touched. All of which should be paid attention to by Yi-ology scholars.
