On the original text of The Lunyu—Zhengyi 論語正義
In this paper, I attempt to present a new theory on the original text of The Lunyu—Zhengyi compiled by Xing—Bing 邢昺(932-1010).
Firstly, I point out the fact that The Lunyu—Zhengyi have many the same contents of commentary as The Wujing—Zhengyi 五経正義, especially, as The Chunqiu—Zhengyi 春秋正義 have.
Secondly, I supporse the existence of one author who wrote The Chunqiu—Zhengyi, The Shangshu—Zhengyi 尚書正義, The Maoshi—Zhengyi 毛詩正義, and a commentary of Lunyu 論語. His name is Liu Xuan 劉炫(549-617) in the Sui 隋 dynasty.
In conclusion, I present a new theory that the original text of The Lunyu—Zhengyi is The Lunyu—Shuyi 論語述義 written by Liu—Xuan.
