本文将灵棋占法当作“易占”的一个支派加以研究。作者以《道藏》本及《四库全书》本中的《灵棋经》为基本文献，考察“灵棋课法”的由来与归属。作者认为，从道书记载情形看，灵棋课法早先应该属于道教使用的一种卜筮技艺。在分析了灵棋课法与易学的关系之后，作者从神明崇拜的角度进一步考察灵棋课法的道教色彩，阐述了该法所蕴含的思想旨趣，发掘其象征底蕴。Lingqi divination method is considered as a branch of the divination methods of I Ching in the paper. Taking advantage of Ling Qi Jing in Dao Zang and Si Ku Quan Shu, the author studied the origin and its ideology. He holds that, according to the records in books of Daoism, Lingqi divination method at first was a divination trick in Daoism. Having analyzed the correlation between Lingqi divination method and I Ching Learning, the author further examined the method's color of Daoism from the angle of deity cult, expounded its ideological purport, and explored its symbolized implications.
