Abstract

過往學界在討論清末學術時,常將清代推崇許、鄭的漢學,和與今文經學相對的古文經學等同起來,反而忽略了清末推崇古文經傳的學者對於今、古文經學之分的論述。如學界在討論章太炎的古文經學時,常沿用清代今文家的觀念來展開論述,使理解時有過於簡略或偏差的情況。本文透過論述章太炎建立「古文經學」觀念的過程,一方面修正過往對章太炎經學思想的理解,另一方面亦希望指出一直以來被學界所慣用的今文經學和古文經學觀念,並非不證自明,而是應當加以分析的學術觀念。

When discussing late Qing intellectual history, past scholars have often equated Han Learning 漢學, which was highly respected in the Qing, with the Old Text school of Classics Studies 古文經學, as opposed to the New Text school of Classics Studies 今文經學. However they have failed to take into account the discourse of late Qing scholars who promoted the old text classics regarding the difference between the Old and New Text schools. When discussing Zhang Taiyan’s 章太炎 old text scholarship, for example, scholars have often continued to use the ideas of the Qing dynasty New Text school to develop their discourse, sometimes leading to over-simplification or errors of understanding. Through discussion of the process by which Zhang Taiyan established the concepts of Old Text Classics Studies, this paper aims on the one hand to correct some inaccuracies in the understanding of his views on Classics studies, and on the other to point out that the concepts of the New and Old Text schools consistently used by scholars are by no means self-evidently correct, and ought to be further analyzed.
