Ying-shih Yü

, Josephine Chiu-Duke, Michael S. Duke

This study details the parts of Sun Yat-sen’s system of thought that drew on ideas adapted from the Chinese intellectual tradition. It discusses Sun’s thought in the context of late 19th-and early 20th-century Chinese intellectual history. Admitting Sun’s debt to Western thought, the article finds its deeper structure to contain component parts of the Chinese tradition and painful struggles to reconcile modernization with what Sun perceived to be the essence of Chinese culture. Thus, Sun’s three principles are seen to have been conceived in a Chinese context.
