For the original website see here.

        【内容提要】 20世纪上半叶,如何认识和书写中国传统史学成为中国现代史学史的重要学术课题。在三、四十年代,钱穆对中国传统史学作了多角度的研究,从先秦典籍的类别《诗》、《书》、《春秋》和“礼”探讨中国史学的起源与早期发展,认为中国史学具有自由、人本和理性的精神;传统史学多样化的体裁扩大了历史记载的范围和内容,通史体裁的创立和完善则确立了中国史学发展的道路,也为中国现代新史学变革指明了路向。钱穆对传统史学的内涵、特质和价值深入发掘,与反传统史家的主张相对立,是对中国传统史学的新认识和新书写,在中国现代史学史上占有重要地位。
