Chapter Summary

This section presents an overview of the book Tradition and Modernity: A Humanist View and its chapters. By the question of culture that figures in the book the author chiefly refers to the discussion over tradition and modernity, which was the heart of the debate by intellectuals of the New Culture Movement. The experience of history shows that the clash of tradition and modernity is a cultural phenomenon that is bound to occur after a modernised county has been galvanised into modernity. In this conflict anti-traditionalism and anti-anti-traditionalism form the basic opposition and source of tension. Now the cultural dispute of the twentieth century from beginning to end revolved around the question of Confucian thought and values. In this field, the author holds a view of culture that wholly affirms Confucian thought and values, which is clearly a stance of anti-anti-traditionalism.

Keywords: anti-traditionalism; modernity; new culture movement; tradition
