Frontiers of Philosophy in China 3 (3):366 - 388 (2008)

Hengxian, one of the bamboo books of the Chu State during the Warring States Period that is kept in the Shanghai Museum, was collected by the museum in 1994, and is an important piece of literature that discusses cosmic issues prior to Huainanzi. Based on Li Ling's work on the text, as well as hermeneutic work by some other scholars, this essay represents another attempt to determine the words and meanings of the Hengxian, with a focus on its cosmological commentary. /// "恒先" 是上海博物馆藏战国楚竹书中的一篇, 1994年入藏上海博物馆。该 文是 "淮南子" 之前讨论宇宙问题的重要文献。依据李零整理的本子与其他学者的 释读,可以对 "恒先" 文义重新加以梳理,并从宇宙论的角度进行新的思想阐释。.
