Chapter Summary

Hsü Fu-kuan took the term Chunqiu to refer to the first section of the work. They cite the views of the Chongwen zongmu and Cheng Dachang and continue: While the text of the book is not necessarily entirely derived from Dong Zhongshu, there is much that is based on his most essential sayings and cannot have been attributed to him by later writers. As has been seen scholars of Song times knew of copies of the Chunqiu fanlu that were of different lengths and included textual difficulties, such that they voiced their doubts regarding Dong Zhongshu's authorship of all or parts of the versions at their disposal. The book is best judged to be a collection of writings of which some originated from Dong's expressions of his ideas, while others were added at later times, some perhaps being records of the discussions held in 79 CE.
