The Quotation from "Somun(素問)" to Four Books in Su(隋) and Dang(唐) Period
$\ll$소문(素問) $\gg$ 적인용(的引用)
The popular edition of "Hwangjenaegyeong somun(黄帝内經 素問)" was established by Wangbing(王冰)'s revising and annexing notes in the Dang(唐) Period. He revised "Jeonwongibon(全元起本)" which became the edition we currently know widely. To know how "Somun(素問)" had been handed down from the Su(隋) Period to the Dang(唐) Period before the establishment of Wangbing(王冰) 's edition, we reviewed the citation of "Somun" in the four books: "Ohaengdaeui(五行大義)", "Jebyeongwonhuron(諸病源候論)", "Sagijeong-ui(史記正義)", and "Oedaebiyobang(外臺秘要方)". As a result, it has been discovered that even if the reference was written as "Hwangjesomun(黄帝素問)" or "Somun(素問)", they did not correspond with the currently established "Somun(素問)" in many cases. On the other hand, there were identical sentences to the current "Somun(素問)" among the cited parts; whereas "Yeolron(熱論)" and "Jahakron(刺瘧論)" were often cited in the medical books such as "Jebyeongwonhuron(諸病源候論)" and "Oedaebiyobang(外臺秘要方)", "Yeolron(熱論)" and "Jahakron(刺瘧論)" were often cited. Thus, we can suggest that the relevant content of "Somun(素問)" should be considered important in the period in question and further that the concept of disease symptom might have changed in those days.
