Abstract: What is the Suo Yin(索隐, investigating the hidden meaning) approach to the studies about A Dream of Red Mansions? This question is fundamental to the studies about A Dream of Red Mansions and the answer to it is critical to the construction of the history on the studies about A Dream of Red Mansions. Although this question has been mentioned in the existing literature on the history of the studies about A Dream of Red Mansions, it is rather difficult to define and identify the Suo Yin approach in the making argument by semantic conversion, facts exploration, focus question, and research methods. To define the Suo Yin approach, one must understand that it is not an equivalent concept of textural research, and that it is not a research method but an interpretative objective. All those, which take texts as camouflages, establish mapping relationship between the meaningful units within texts and the objects out of texts and further try to construct the intentions of the author, are and can be defined as the Suo Yin approach. Only with this understanding can the vaious Suo Yin approaches in the history of the studies about A Dream of Red Mansions be distinguished from other approaches, the pattern of the history of the studies about A Dream of Red Mansions be constructed in the right way and the solid foundation be laid for the Suo Yin approach to the future studies about A Dream of Red Mansions.
