 YANG CHU IN THE HISTORY OF CHINESE PHILOSOPHYIn an earlier paper1 I described Yang Chu'
Yang Chu's bodily emphasis was the outcome of his focus on the no-longer-unclean private realm; "the body" served neatly as a marker for the non-public, non-social, non-ritual self.
Yang Chu can be thought of as an ancestor of various later movements, but it is probably best to think of him as a rational hedonist (or familialist) who judged every action strictly in terms of its immediate personal effects, placing no value on rank, honor, reputation, tradition, or public opinion.
Yang Chu remains a shadowy figure, and on the basis of what we know it would be rash to try to define his views too precisely: in any case, the topic of this paper is not so much Yang Chu himself as his influence.

 Huiwen of Qin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He succeeded Duke Xiao (秦孝公) (also a posthumous name) and executed his predecessor's prime minister, the famous legalist, Shang Yang (商鞅), on charges of fomenting rebellion.
The real reason may have been longstanding hatred toward Shang Yang for his draconian punishments: it is recorded that Shang Yang enraged the young crown prince Huiwen by having the nose of Huiwen's tutor cut off for a minor infraction.
Nevertheless Huiwen retained Shang Yang's reforms to the structure of the Qin state as he could see the benefits inherent in these — indeed the legalist reforms enacted by Shang Yang probably contributed significantly to Qin's successful conquest of the other Six Kingdoms.

 Sun Bin: Misnomer of the legalist Shang Yang, and how to fix the mess in China's legal system
Shang Yang (商鞅) was widely regarded at the representative figure in the school of "legalism" (法家)in 300BC.
I was actually trying to single out Shang Yang from the rest of the 'legalists', and tried to argue that the later legalists probably have mis-understood Shang's spirit and believes.
You certainly know Shang Yang better than I, and I do not doubt that there may be elements of market-oriented, or proto-market, thinking in his work.

Shang Yang went to Wei, but they considered him a traitor and a criminal and forced him back into Qin, where in 338 BC he was killed and torn apart by chariots as a warning to rebels.

 The Legalists
Shang Yang was celebrated as a martyr, as after his reform fell through, he was subjected to the cruelest form of punishment by his political opponents: having his four limbs tied to four horses riding in four different directions.
Shang Yang's views on human nature was reflected in his emphasis on strict rules to instill fear in people.
Like Shang Yang, Han Fei believed people were by nature self-seeking and would find an easy way out if they could, therefore they should not be provided with any alternatives except for clearly laid out laws.
