Xu Xing (philosopher)
Xu Xing (Chinese:許行;about 372 - 289 century BC) was a Chinese philosopher and one of the most notable advocates of agriculturalism, a political philosophy that advocated peasant utopian communalism and egalitarianism. With a group of followers he settled in the state of Teng in about 315 BC. A disciple of his visited the Confucian philosopher Mencius, and a short report of their conversation discussing Xu Xing's philosophy survives.
