Reflections on the Location of Zixia's Hometown
Zixia is a famous ideologist in Pre-Qin Period. In the studies on the location of Zixia's hometown, few scholars respects Zhenxuan's saying of Wen People, but unified him as a Wei Nation(卫国) or Wei People(魏国) for further investigation,which discusses Zixia's birthplace, Wenyi's affiliation to Wei(卫) or Wei(魏). In general, the ones of Wei People(卫国人)neglected the reality of Wenyi had a long period administrated by Ji State, while the ones of Wei State(魏国)has no thorough evidence to deny the records on which Wei State(卫国) had administrated parts of Wen territories, further to exclude the possibilities of which Zixia's hometown affiliated to Wei State(卫国). As the Master of Confucian classics, Zhengxuan might not understand the affiliations of Zixia's birthplace, so adopted the blurry historical concept,Wenguo, to describe it. However, this kind of blurry expression is a meticulous attitude in academic studies, which would be the better proposal under the unclear situations of Zixia's hometown.
