Abstract: Chen Hansheng did not turn to Marxism over night; instead it took him some time to accept and embrace historical materialism. He then took historical materialism as a basic approach to historical study in order to address the key question among all interrelated events and understand the social evolution of Chinese history. Motivated by his concerns for concrete social problems,he also pursued historical research by looking at macro economic regions as a way for social analysis so that he could reach a scientific understanding of historical change. He worked hard on revealing truth and facts in history while at the same time making history useful for explaining social reality. A study of Chen Hansheng’s historiography,centering on his ideas and methods of history,is of help to better understand the complex relation between the development of historical materialism and overall academic cultural change in the first half of the 20th century.
