Sample text

The majority of those arguments were convincingly disposed of by C h a vann e s in his above-mentioned study (p. ). As regards quotations in the old texts which do not appear in the present day text, it would perhaps be right to point out that-in addition to the passages which, as first noticed by Mas per 0, were in contradiction to Confucian tradition-the majority of references to States other than Chin and Wei have also disappeared from the text (such as the reference to the enthroning of Prince Chih of Yen, mentioned above).

For instance, the above-mentioned editor of this text, Hun g I - h s ti an, rejects the idea that the present-day text is a forgery. He only admits that the text has undergone changes in the course of time, that it has been corrupted and that parts of it have been lost. To-day, in spite of these considerations, I must incline to the opinion that the text is a daring and, indeed, impudent forgery. In this connection I do not consider as decisive the arguments against the genuineness of the text put forward by the authors of the Szu-k'u ch'uan-shu tsung-mu t'i-yao (19).

' On pourrait neanmoins objecter que les rois Wu, de meme que les souverains des autres royaumes non chinois du Sud de la Chine, se refusant a reconnaitre la souveraineM des rois Chou, employerent, des leur origine, Ie titre de "roi" wang. Cette objection ne saurait toutefois refuter nos remarques a propos du terme pa-wang, et nous aurons encore l'occasion de montrer ci-dessous que Ie livre de Maitre Sun n'a rien de commun avec Ie royaume de Wu, car il fut ecrit dans Ie Nord, berceau de la civilization chinoise.
