Emperor after the pre-order 12




All quotations from the Su wen in this volume are part of the translation
of the full text to be published in three subsequent volumes. For the most
part, the ample annotations on the meaning of individual characters and
entire passages accompanying the translation have not been repeated here.
Phrases in the quotations denoted by brackets [ ] are inserts required in English
for syntactic reasons or to complete a statement from the source text
too concise to reveal its meaning in the target language without such inserts.
Parentheses ( ) indicate explanatory notes added by me. Curly brackets { }
denote statements in the Su wen tentatively identified as ancient commentaries
on an older layer of the text. Double curly brackets {{ }} denote a secprefatory
remarks xi
ondary commentary added by an ancient author to an earlier commentary.
Angle brackets < > denote ancient inserts in the Su wen text meant to complete
or amend an earlier text passage.
This book cannot and does not claim to say everything that can be said
about the Su wen. On the contrary, it should be seen merely as a beginning,
meant to generate an intellectual interest in this text in many more scholars
than have cared to take notice of it and related ancient Chinese writings
in the past.
