SOME SCHOLARLY VIEWS ON THE ORIGIN OF THE SU WEN 9




While no author ever doubted that the Su wen mentioned by Zhang Ji and
in later sources listed above is the nucleus of the text with the same title available
today, the subsequent reference to a Jiu juan (lit., “9 juan”) has been
more enigmatic. One might be tempted to read the characters ¿›E˜ as
“Su wen in 9 juan.” However, Yu Zihan et al. cite three arguments supporting
a separate reading as Su wen and Jiu juan.
First, some of the ancient medical heroes who are mentioned by Zhang
Ji, including Shao Shi and Shao Yu, do not appear in the Su wen. They are
named as dialogue partners of Huang Di only in the Ling shu, suggesting
that Su wen and Jiu juan refer to two different texts and that the Jiu juan is a
predecessor of or identical to the Ling shu of today.

The Zhen jing mentioned by Huangfu Mi is generally equated with the
Ling shu available today. If one accepts this equation, even more questions
arise regarding the identity of the Huang Di nei jing and of the Su wen–Zhen
jing. I return to this issue after discussing the Zhen jing–Ling shu equation.
At this point, though, the historical data already suggest a conclusion.
