zhāng (彰)

to be apparent or to make known, obvious; in Sùwèn 75.1.7, it refrains the theme of illumination of míng (明) in Sùwèn 75.1.6. The progression in that line clarifies that one may shed light on some passage of text or situation — míng (明), but still not be able to convey that understanding into specific clinical applications — zhāng (彰). One implication of this progression in Sùwèn 75.1 is that academic scholarship, without the ability to translate one’s understanding into clinical application, has limited value.
