I recommand moving the article to Gongsun Longzi, thereby grouping the family names and first names. User:kt2

Factual accuracy[edit]

The Gongsun Longzi is the only extant book ascribed to one of the sophists, its supposed author is Gongsun Long. 白馬非馬 (Bái mǎ fēi mǎ) is not the title of his most famous work, but the first sentence in the Essay on the white horse 白馬論 (Bái mǎ lùn). All listed works are essays included in the Gongsun Longzi -- btw, the essay Storehouse of traces (跡府 Ji fǔ) needs to be added. --Chongmyong 10:08, 13 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]

I have moved the page to the author's name, and made that clear in the text. Rigadoun (talk) 17:13, 28 November 2006 (UTC)[reply]

I don't understand this sentence[edit]

"These paradoxes seem to suggest a similarity to the discovery in Greek philosophy that pure logic may lead to apparently absurd conclusions." I doubt that pure logic may in fact lead to apparently absurd conclusions (and not, say, logic combined with sophistical reasoning and word-play). Since "discover" is a success term, I take it that the sentence is incorrect. In any case, it's a confusing and unhelpful gloss on the occasional paradox-mongering that went on in some Ancient Greek thought.2601:47:4200:542:CAF7:33FF:FE77:D800 (talk) 17:09, 24 June 2015 (UTC)[reply]
