Abstract


Guided by Marxist dialectical materialism and materialistic interpretation of history, the dissertation deals with the comprehensive and systematical research of Cao Xuequan from the perspective of history, by means of subject-integration and textual research and comment. The dissertation gives a full definition of Cao Xuequan’s active role in ancient Chinese history, considering him as a renowned civilian statesman, litterateur, bibliophile and patriot, who embodied national spirit, people-first thought and research mind, deserving the posterity’s emulating. The dissertation is broken down into seven chapters, with additional Introduction and Conclusion.Introduction This section briefs on the life of Cao Xuequan and the origin of topic selection, recalls the corresponding research history and outlines the research perspective, structure, research methods and material sources.Chapter One Cao Xuequan’s Background This chapter involves the personal research of Cao Xuequan into the whole research of the late Ming Dynasty history, systematically investigating his background such as politics, economy, ideology and culture, etc. Only in this way can a relatively satisfactory origin be figured out for this historic figure’s behaviors and ideas, and thus manifest their meanings and values.Chapter Two Cao Xuequan’s Life This chapter gives a comprehensive investigation and re-establishment of Cao Xuequan’s life, through perusing, collating, comparing and integrating the scattered historical materials and his existing works.Chapter Three Cao Xuequan’s Works and Collection Cao Xuequan devoted his whole life to learning ,writing and collecting books. This chapter mainly gives prominence to Cao Xuequan’s position in philology and bibliophilism, by means of gathering, coordinating and piecing his works, publishing editions and collections from the perspective of philology.Chapter Four Cao Xuequan’s Literature Achievements Cao Xuequan was famous for his erudition, especially his literature. This chapter emphasizes Cao Xuequan’s outstanding c.ontribution to Fujian literature development and the birth of Min Opera, by researching his poetic theory, poetry, pose and drama creation.Chapter Five Cao Xuequan’s Civilian Thought This chapters deals with Cao Xuequan’s people-first administration idea and its era features as well as operation significance, by expounding on its origination and development.Chapter Six Cao Xuequan’s Buddhism Cao Xuequan’s whole life was closely linked to Buddhism, for Buddhist values and thought not only deeply affected his personality, spirituality and mentality, but also permeated his poetic creation and unique style. This chapter analyses the reasons for Cao Xuequan’s Buddhism from late Ming Dynasty historic setting and his personal experience, and probes into his Buddhist behaviors and idiosyncracy, so as to enrich Cao Xuequan’s thoughts from another angle.Chapter Seven Cao Xuequan’s Communication and Assembly It is an important facet of Cao Xuequan research to investigate his communication and assembly. As a renowned statesman and litterateur of late Ming Dynasty, Cao Xuequan’s thoughts and ideas are closely linked to the times, his personality, experience and family surroundings, as well as his communication and assembly. This chapter explores Cao Xuequan’s communication and assembly, which deepens the study of Cao Xuequan and clarifies the picture of politics and literature development in late Ming Dynasty.Conclusion This section synthetically draws a conclusion and affirmation of Cao Xuequan’s life, based on the above chapters. In my opinion, as a historical celebrity, Cao Xuequan was held highly not only for his nobility and accomplishment, but also for his erudition. Success and works perish with body, while spirit ever-lasts; Feat and riches vicissitude with time, while morality retains.
