ABSTRACT

Zhu Guang-qian’s experience in Chengdu for more than one year influenced his later academic life. During those days, the most critical thing for Zhu Guang-qian was the change of his social identity from scholar, professor to dean of the liberal arts college in Sichuan University, which caused Zhu Guang-qian to take more part in the practical personnel work and lead people against Cheng Tian-fang’s coming into Sichuan University when the Ministry of Education appointed Cheng to replace Zhang Yi as the president of Sichuan University. The above far-reaching unrest launched by Zhu Guang-qian not only made the high-ranking officials of KMT, such as Chiang Kai-shek, Zhang Qun and Chen Li-fu, pay attention to him, but also made Zhou Yang who was responsible for the work concerning literature and education in Yan An to noticed him. The KMT leadership’s notice of Zhu Guang-qian was the important cause for Zhu Guang-qian’s later appointment a member of the KMT Central Supervising Committee and make intense political comments against the student movement in the late 1940s, and also was the indirect cause for Zhu Guang-qian to incur harsh criticism from the CPC, such as Guo Mo-ruo, Shao Quan-lin and Cai Yi. Therefore, in the early 1950s, he was the focus of thought reform in Peking University. Zhu Guang-qian’s experience in Chengdu played as the landmark in his academic career. Before the experience, Zhu Guang-qian’s academic work was mainly influenced by the dominant academic discourse, but after the experience, more by the impact of the mainstream ideology. This paper analyzes the process in details.
