VAN DER LOON University of Cambridge Students of Kuan-tzu, both in and outside China, have devoted more attention to the circumstances in which the text was first written than to the later stages of its transmission. In his mono- graph on the composition of Lo K6n-ts6 ti ? deals in turn with the different p'ien of the text, trying to date each of them by internal evidence I).

He certainly makes out a strong case for studying the various parts of the present text individually, although the conclusions he reaches can only be provisional.

Lo K?n-ts6 does not take suf- ficient account of the possibility that many readings in the present text may be due to later corruption instead of being original features of the respective p'1'en.
