Abstract

Hu Shih (1891-1962) was one of the most influential figures in modern Chinese intellectual history. The highlight of his life was shown in the May Fourth Period (1915-1921), an era that needed and created thinkers. This thesis describes the historical context of Chinese intellectuals' learning from the West, Hu's early education at home, his American experience, and his activities after returning to China. An attempt is made to draw some lessons from Hu's history by analyzing the impact of education on his intellectual development and his role in the popular education of the May Fourth Period so as to emphasize the importance of critical assimilation and application of knowledge.
