Abstract: In proposing his idea of "new historiography",Liang Qichao attempted to construct a new paradigm in historical study,which covered such basic areas as historical interpretation,historical function,historical style,and history’s relation with other disciplines. This new paradigm,the author argues,was not forsaken in the subsequent May Fourth era with the rise of the "Historical Source"school. Instead,he believes that Liang’s ideas became developed and entrenched during the period. Having had more exposure to the changes of Western culture,Liang himself had modified his attitude toward the Chinese cultural tradition.But overall,he did not entirely change his position. Instead,he further developed his ideas of "new historiography," turning it into one of the three major trends in modern Chinese historiography.Complementing one another,Liang’s "new historiography"was also equally significant as the "Historical Source"school and Marxist school in modern China.
