屈萬里(1907-1979)是台灣當代著名的學者。他於經學、古文字學、文獻學等範疇著述甚豐,對學界貢獻良多。他曾在〈經義新解舉例〉一文提出:“近七八十年來,新出土的學術資料很多。憑藉這些古人所沒有見過的資料,在經學方面,可以糾正舊說之誤者頗多。”古文字即為其中一種新出土的學術資料。誠然,屈氏利用古文字提出了不少精闢的見解。然而,他的意見亦有不少值得商榷之處。是次演講將以屈萬里三種《尚書》注(《尚書釋義》、《尚書今注今譯》、《尚書集釋》)為例,透過辨其運用古文字證經的得失,探討古文字與古籍互證的要點。

Qu Wanli (1907-1979), a famous scholar in contemporary Taiwan, has remarkable achievements and significant contributions in various fields including Confucian Classics, Chinese Paleography and Chinese Documentology etc. In an article entitled “Examples on the new interpretations of Confucian classics”, he mentioned: “In the past 70-80 years, many new materials have been unearthed. With these new materials which are unknown to our predecessors, lots of misinterpretations in the past can be clarified, especially in the field of Confucian classics.” Indeed, Qu offered various new perspectives in the study of ancient texts by making references to ancient Chinese characters. He, however, also misinterpreted some of them. This seminar will focus on three kinds of annotations of the Book of Documents by Qu, and it aims at discussing and exploring issues related to ancient Chinese characters and the study of ancient texts.
