Chapter Summary

This chapter helps to confirm Zhi Yus anti-Xunism. It examines the continuing interests of Zhang Huas proteges and offshoot scholarly circles, in particular Zhi Yu and his own friends. First the chapter looks at Zhis analysis and how it served as anti-Xun Xu criticism. Next comes an episode that reveals Xun Xus last intellectual position at court concerning court scholarship. It shows that in about 286 he was still vetting and reviewing historiography. Subsequently, the chapter talks about Xuns demotion and death, and then, in about 298, a revival of the 284 debate between Xun Xu and Wang/Fu Zan over where to begin chronicling Jin history. The chapter ends by considering the meaning of Xun Xus life in scholarship and his prisca Zhou.

Keywords: anti-Xunism; historiography; prisca Zhou; Zhang Hua; Zhi Yu
