釋文:

昔韓非述管仲之對桓公曰:「知臣莫如君。知子莫如父。」斯言也,予以為非是。夫自古及今,多有以此言為然者,而余以為非是者何?盖其君若父,果賢耶?自能知之,而亦無待其臣子及他人之頌,使其不賢,不能知在他人,則是不關己之謬,以害人家國。設為臣子者,亦如是言,則是內懷怨懟,而仍陷其君,若父於不知也!即以桓公屢舉鮑叔牙諸人,而管仲皆以為不可,是果知臣乎?桀之於關龍逢,紂之於王子比干,亦猶是也!瞽瞍之於舜,獻公之於申生,是果知子乎?其類此者,不可屈數。余故以為非是,盖不近情之論,聽之似是,而折衷於理,其剌謬不通,若是者亦多矣!且君子立言,將以為萬世法程,而不可逞一己之私智,以欺世盗名也。言治之書,莫如典謨,一則曰在知人、再則曰惟帝其難之,使世之。為君為父者皆曰,我已知臣,我已知子,誤知子者,其害猶不過一家;誤知臣者,其害將及國與天下,是誰作之俑哉?夫自以為不知者,或可勉以至有知之日;而自以為已知者,吾知其為終於不知而已矣!
