Abstract: There are very few records about Wang Haogu’s life in the extant historical materials.Therefore,many questions are now still in dispute.From the perspective of historical origin study,this paper collated and analyzed relevant materials and made a textual research on the connotation of the Chinese word “xianshi (late master)”,and this paper concluded that it was an groundless claim made by the editors of Imperial Collection of Si Ku Quan Shu(Four Treasuries) that Wang Haogu had ever studied directly under Zhang Yuansu’s tutorship.Moreover,by means of a chronological approach,this paper ascertained the completion time of Yin Zheng Lue Li(Synopsis and cases of Yin patlerns),Tang Ye Ben Cao(Materia Uedica for Decoltons),Yi Lei Yuan Rong(Clinician is Like a Uillitany Commandor) and Ci Shi Nan Zhi(Uedicine Is A Oifficult Art) by Wang’s works and prefaces.Based on this study,this paper came to the conclusion that Wang Haogu was born at the beginning of 13th century and died after 1308.

Key words: Wang Haogu, Zhang Yuansu, years of birth and death, completion year of the book
