【摘要】近20年来,在观念史、思想文化与社会转型、知识分子、新文化史以及报刊史等五个领域,中国近代思想史研究呈现出一系列新进展,也在大陆、港台、日本、欧洲、美国等地区形成了不同的思想史研究范式。一方面,多元现代性理念的兴起,带来研究视野的转变,也赋予思想史多元的内容。另一方面,社会科学研究理念的引入,特别是新文化史研究方法的交叉融合,扩大了传统思想史研究的范畴与边界,打通了思想史与人文社会科学的壁垒,也引发了研究者对于思想史研究学科建设的深层思考。上世纪90年代以来,随着学术研究与学科互动在全球化背景下的深入发展,近代中国思想史研究在深化原有的研究领域、研究课题的同时,也在传承与创新中呈现出更为多姿多彩的样貌。思想史研究逐步探究思想背后的社会和文化因素,聚焦于近代中国与世界的复杂历史图景。具体而言,在观念史研究、思想文化与社会转型研究、近代中国知识分子研究、新文化史与思想史结合研究以及报刊史研究等五个研究领域所取得的新成果,极大地丰富了近20年来近代中国思想史研究的新内涵,也拓展出诸多新议题与新理念,在大陆、港台、日本、欧洲、美国等地区形成了不同的思想史研究范式。
