The studies of Wang Yangming in Middle Zhejiang and Jiangxi provinces are recognized as the two most important schools of post-Wang Yangming research. Their significant differences are based on the inner contradictions of Wang's theory itself and the specific historical and cultural background of Middle Zhejiang and Jiangxi. The study on Wang of the former paid more attention to " theory", so that the contradictions made them gradually deviate from Wang's original purpose. While the study in Jiangxi focused on "practice", that is, following the guidance of Wang's spirit to improve people's living conditions and the local society, which better carried out Wang's purpose even though theoretically deviated from and revised Wang's theory. As a result,"Wang's life spirit lies in Jiangxi".
