Chapter Summary

This chapter, standing on the threshold of the turn of the century and looking back on the discussion of tradition and modernity of the past century, asks: what experiences have we acquired and what have we learnt? Looking to the future, to the new century, will we or can we see things in a new light? In certain respects it may be said that the history of twentieth century China is one of the Chinese nation seeking modernisation. The debate over 'tradition and modernity' that has been a part of twentieth century Chinese culture, has been one that has accompanied this course of history. Although the debate about 'tradition and modernity' in the twentieth century, centred on different aspects at different times and inclined towards different theories, the 'tradition and modernity' debate of twentieth century China was never a matter of do we want the modern or not.

Keywords: modernity; tradition; twentieth century China
