Research article by Yang Nianqun (杨念群) on the conflict and adaptation between traditional historiography and new paradigms in modern Chinese historiography

Posted on Updated on

Through an examination of the relationship between three different types of Chinese historiography, i.e. historiography motivated by the traditional spirit of passing on a cultural spirit, historiography dominated by a concern for collecting historical material only, and historiography specializing on regional social history, Yang Nianqun discusses the question of whether or not historiography should still uphold moral judgments and whether or not it should still show a concern for the bigger picture of overarching historical narratives in times that he calls the epoch of “post-new” historiography.

“新典范”和“旧史学”的冲突与调适——对中国现当代史学变革的一个贯通性解释

杨念群

《中国人民大学学报》(京)2012年6期

【内容提要】民国初年的新史学主流强调科学地无限拓展史料搜集的范围,忽略对历史进行宏观或规律性的解释,以至于形成了史料即是史学的极端主张。传统史家则坚持史学应该传承文化精神,洞悉“世变”走向与实施道德评判。新史学另有一支发展为后来的区域社会史研究。本文不拟分别概述比较三者的异同优劣,而是对其方法论的演变做一贯通式的考察,并对史学研究是否要坚持道德判断、局部研究与整体历史观之间的关系以及中国史学如何步入后新史学时代等问题表达了自己的看法。
【关 键 词】新史学 / 道德判断 / 民族主义 / 结构性要素
