The doctrines of Mencius are undoubtedly original. They represent the most archetypal wisdom of our Chinese nation. There are different opinions about the birth and death of Mencius, and the gap between them is 20 years. This paper attempts to further sort out and summarize the materials of the past generations. From the text, the author studies the restoration of Mencius's birth and death years, which makes Mencius's birth and death years closer to historical reality and true thinking.
