陈寅恪先生的“关陇集团”说 ,重点阐释了周、隋、唐三代政权的性质与特点 ,对中古史研究影响颇深。但学界对该说有一定的争议。虽然陈先生明确界定了关陇集团的性质与特点 ,但因拘囿于该学说 ,不恰当地超越了“关陇集团”的界限 ,导致了研究中的自相矛盾和理论上的僵化。事实是关陇集团产生于特殊的历史时期 ,随着政治和社会环境的变化 ,该集团的性质也在发生变化。降及隋唐 ,已不存在具有一致目标和严密组织的政治集团———关陇集团The theory of "the Guan-Long Clique" advocated by Chen Yinque expounded the nature and character of the various regimes in the Zhou, the Sui and the Tang Dynasties. It has had a great influence on the study in Chinese history and also brought about some controversies in the academic circle. Scholars have been unable to agree whether there existed such a clique. Although Mr Chen had given a clear definition of its character, he overstepped the limits, which resulted in self-contradiction and stereotyped theorization. As a matter of fact, the Guan-Long Clique came into being in special times. Along with the change of political and social circumstances the nature of the Clique also changed.
