    Abstract: ABSTRACT
    The aim of this paper is to elucidate a characteristic aspect of early Chinese political thought: The formation of a theory of "non-verbal rule." I have tried to explain it by tracing the evolutionary process of the term cheng 誠 (sincerity), which functioned as the key concept in its theorization, and by delineating its conceptual structure among major concepts that appear along with the term cheng in the Warring States texts. My observations can be divided into four points as follows.
    First, in its presumably earliest use, the term cheng appears to denote piety in funeral rites and ceremonies for ancestral worship. However, in the majority of its early usages, it is an adverb, meaning "really" or "truly."
    Second, in Mencius, the term cheng appears as a moral value. Yet, strangely, it is not combined with other major Confucian values such as ren, yi, li, etc. Instead, it appears in strong connection with the terms shan (goodness) and the phrase "dongren" (to move others), in which the term implies a kind of miraculous transformative power leading people to virtue.
    Third, in Zhuangzi, cheng appears as an important moral value, meaning the genuineness of one's mind and natural providence. Here, the effect of the term cheng is associated with the providential power of Heaven and Earth.
    And fourth, in Lttshi chunqiu, the term cheng, in conjunction with the term jing, appears as an indispensable component enabling a ruler to practice "non-verbal rule." Here, the psychological state of cheng is taken to cause the transmission of atomic essence between the sender and receiver resulting in the receiver becoming virtuous. Key words: concept of cheng 誠, concept of jing 精, non-verbal rule, Lttshi chunqiu
