Warring States Project
Texts and Topics

In this section, we provide summaries of the state of research as we see it, on key issues and major texts. Apart from any information value they may have, these brief pages are also meant as invitations to viewers, to contribute or correct from their own research results. They replace the former Classical Chinese Texts section, which provided more detailed arguments for conclusions about the major texts. For those arguments, see now the articles in Warring States Papers or elsewhere, many of which are cited here.
