We interviewed Professor Chen Den-wu of National Taiwan Normal University, Department of History, on June 21 in Taipei. In this video recording, Professor Chen talks about the contribution of our series to the academic world.
From the perspective of historical scholarship, the greatest significance of this collection is that it allows this historical figure to take his rightful place in history. To have his written works taken seriously, so they can be read and understood allows us to get even closer to history; and to reconstruct the true history. Everyone says that reconstructing true history is so important, yet if you deliberately ignore certain materials, how, then, are you going to discover the truth? So, as I am saying, this work is really, really important.Chen Den-wu
