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.
