About 適 胡

譜名洪騂 原名嗣穈 字希疆 后改名胡適 字適之

Hu Shih, leading member of the Peking University galaxy of intellectuals. His efforts to promote the use of pai-hua [the vernacular[ in writing sparked the literary and cultural movements of the 1920's. A disciple of John Dewey, he utilized Western philosophical terminology and methodology in reinterpreting classical Chinese thought. His historical studies of pai-hua literature were important works. From 1937 until his death, he spent only six years in China. He lived in the United States, serving as Chinese ambassador from 1938 to 1942. He became president of the Academia Sinica in Taiwan in 1958.
