One of the distinctive features of the Project's proposed text chronology is that it brings together in time bits of text which turn out to be in dialogue with each other. The construction of a valid time sequence for those text segments is a very severe test of earlier conclusions about their dates. Once that sequence is successfully achieved and confirmed, it is also of direct benefit to history, since it makes at least that part of the rumored Hundred Schools philosophical debate available for analysis.
We here collect some samples of intertextual dialogue, for their interest as successful philological outcomes, and also simply to provide information on topics in which viewers may be interested.
