Abstract: Despite Sima Qian’s concepts of the ancient and the modern differ in the evaluation of specific things , he basically takes the rational attitude towards treating the ancient and the modern in order to be consistent with the purpose of recording history which is to“explore the relationship between God and man , be familiar with ancient and modern changes , to become their own origi-nal remarks.” Because the ancient and modern pay the same attention to revealing the relationship between god and man , Sima Qian was against worshiping the ancient and the modern .Thus when dealing with the past and the modern relationship , he stressed“com-bining the ancient and the modern as a whole ”and knowing the ancient and the modern very well .Sima Qian’s attitude towards the ancient and the modern is closely related to his reorganization of the relationship between the ancient and the modern .From a macro point of view, when examining the whole history of the ancient and the modern historical development , Sima Qian took the recycle theory model;but from the microscopic point of view , when examining specific changes in the ancient and the modern , he obviously has history progressive ideas.
