From the study-viewpoint of triangular connection with ocean consciousness, Confucian value and Hakka figures in late Qing, the article has investigated into the difference of ocean consciousness between Hakka Confucian gentry Wu Ze-Guang and Qiu Feng-Jia in order to probe for the dynamic evolution of Confucian thought in late Qing Taiwan with comprehension of creativity of Confucianism in spite of facing the challenge of modern west in China. Both Wu Ze-Guang and Qiu Feng-Jia were typical Hakka Confucian gentry in late Qing Taiwan. But they sharply differed from each other in ocean consciousness and the conception of world because of their different Confucian cultivations, personalities, situations, and life-experiences. Those were the reasons too why they were different not only with historical judgment, but also with motive power to put the Confucian value into practice. The former revealed the passivity and conservatism of Confucianism, while the latter achieved the Confucian value actively and creatively. Their discrepancy could have reflected the transformation of ocean consciousness of Hakka Confucian gentry in late Qing Taiwan. The article has inquired into the transformation and probed for how and why Hakka Confucian gentry could be in a dilemma or had dual forces between conservatism and creationism in late Qing. Besides, it has discussed the possible meanings of interaction between ocean consciousness and Confucian value.
