Wang Tong and the Compilation of the Zhongshuo: A New Evaluation of the Source Materials and Points of Controversy

Abstract

In 1977, Howard Wechsler summarized the thousand-year-old Wang Tong controversy and surveyed the source materials that pertain to Wang Tong and the Zhonghshuo. Unfortunately, the problematic source materials that Wechsler noted but left unanalyzed have continued to discourage scholars from studying the Zhongshuo or trying to locate Wang Tong and his Zhongshuo in the history of ideas. The present study attempts to establish the relative reliability of the controversial textual sources relating to Wang Tong and the Zhongshuo, and suggests possible solutions to puzzles that Wechsler left unresolved: (1) the mysterious absence of Wang Tong's biography in the Sui shu; (2) the lack of any mention of Wang Tong or his academy in early Tang histories of the Sui; (3) the roster of Wang Tong's students; and (4) the history of the Zhongshuo's original compilation and transmission.
