ABSTRACT

Guan Zhong(管仲) is one of the five old documents contained in the 6th release of Tsinghua Bamboo Slips(清华简) - a collection of Chinese texts dating to the Warring States period acquired in 2008 by Tsinghua University. It contains the dialogue between the Duke Huan of Qi(齊桓公) and Guan Zhong(管 仲) as to how to govern a country, which consists of 12 dialogues in which the Duke Huan of Qi(齊桓公) asks and Guan Zhong(管仲) answers. It is a newly found manuscript produced in the mid to late Warring States period which is not shown in the current Master Guan(管子). In Guan Zhong(<管仲>), the Yin Yang(陰陽) and the five elements(五行) notion is clearly shown and some contents of this bamboo manuscript shows a direct linkage to and clear correspondence with those in the Great Plan (洪範, Hong Fan) of the Book of Documents, therefore attracting the attention of the academic society.
