A Discussion of Chinese Studies in Zhu Xi's Philosophy in the First 80 Years in 20th Century
二十世紀前八十年華人朱子學研究探討
Abstract
 
At the early stage of the twentieth century, facing the challenges from western philosophy, a series of Chinese scholars, in readjusting the perspective and research method, began to have a new exploration on Zhu Xi’s philosophy. They re-specified the research scope and adopted terms in western philosophy to accurately define concepts in Zhu Xi’s theories. This research focuses on the first eighty years in the twentieth century, including the early establishment of the discipline of modern study in Zhu Xi’s philosophy, and the framework of Zhu Xi’s theories put forward by several scholars after 1949. As a review of the foundation of modern study in Zhu Xi’s philosophy, this thesis could provide help on recognizing the direction, the method, the inheritance and the innovation in contemporary studies in Zhu Xi and Neo-Confucianism.
 
摘要
 
在二十世紀初,一批中國哲學學人在西學挑戰下,重新調整視野和方法,開始對傳統朱子學研究展開新的探索。他們對朱子哲學的討論範圍作了新的規定,並利用西方哲學的概念術語對朱子學說作了初步的界定工作。本項研究主要對二十世紀前八十年的朱子學研究進行探討,其範圍包括民國時期朱子學的初期建構,以及1949年之後幾位學者在最早對朱子哲學體系提出的框架基礎。作為對現代朱子學發展基礎的回顧,這篇論文可為進一步認識當下朱子研究乃至理學研究的方向及方法,繼承與創新的層面起到一定的幫助。
