【内容简介】


This study uncovers the traditions behind the formative Classic Shangshu (Venerated documents). It is the first to establish these traditions—“Shū” (Documents)—as a historically evolving practice of thought-production. By focusing on the literary form of the argument, it interprets the “Shū” as fluid text material that embodies the ever-changing cultural capital of projected conceptual communities. By showing how these communities actualised the “Shū” according to their changing visions of history and evolving group interests, the study establishes that by the Warring States period (ca. 453–221 BC) the “Shū” had become a literary genre employed by diverse groups to legitimise their own arguments. Through forms of textual performance, the “Shū” gave even peripheral communities the means to participate in political discourse by conferring their ideas with ancient authority. 


本书揭示了儒家经典《尚书》在形成时期的各种传统,首次将这些传统—姑且统称为「书」—确立为一个在历史上不断演变的思想生成进程。作者关注论证的文学形式,将「书」视作流动的文本材料,能体现出所投射的概念社群不断变化的文化资本。本论著透过显示这些社群如何根据自身不断演变的历史观与群体利益而使「书」具体化,揭示出战国时代时「书」已成为一种文类而为不同群体所利用,借以合法化自己的论点。通过各种形式的「文本表演」,即使边缘化的社群亦能利用「书」来参与政治论述,赋予其观点「古已有之」的权威。
