Guo Xiang 郭象 [Kuo Hsiang]

ook: zi Zixuan
periode: c. 252 - 312 n.Chr - Yin dynastie

 

Guo Xiang is samensteller van de overgeleverde Zhuangzi en voorzag deze van commentaar. Hij heeft de toen bestaande tekst van 52 hoofdstukken ingekort en geredigeerd tot de huidige Zhuangzi met 33 hoofdstukken.

De 'Taoist Canon - A Historical Companion to the Daozang' geeft de volgende biografie:
A celebrated philosopher of the Western Jin period (265-316), Guo was a native of Luoyang. He held several honorific court appointments, including gentleman-in-attendance at the Palace Gate (huangmen
shilang). An expert on the Laozi and the Zhuangzi, and an adept of the art of "pure conversation" (qingtan), Guo Xiang expanded upon the work of Xiang Xiu ~ '* (ca. 221-300) to produce the most famous of Zhuangzi commentaries. In the Daozang it has been incorporated into Nanhua zhenjing zhushu. (Schipper 2004 p 1260)
