On the morning of November 2, 2019, the 49th edition of Zhengde Forum, hosted by the Marxist College of Nanjing Normal University, was successfully held in the 542 Report Hall of Xingmin Building. The lecture was moderated by Professor Wang Yilin, a doctoral tutor at the Marxist Academy, who was lectured by Professor Wang Yulin of the Social Science Center of the Ministry of Education. Wang Gang, president of our hospital, and other teachers, more than 100 undergraduates, master's and doctoral students actively participated in the lecture.
Professor Wang Yue gave a brief introduction to Mr. Wang Yulin and welcomed him to the "Zhengde Forum" in the midst of his busy schedule. Immediately after, Mr. Wang set out from the two dimensions of guiding theory and basic principles of the study of the history of the Communist Party of China and some methods to deepen the study of the history of the Communist Party of China, and combined with his rich theoretical knowledge and practical experience, he brought a spiritual feast to the students.
First of all, in view of the guiding theory and basic principles of the study of the history of the Communist Party of China, Mr. Wang explained the four principles in depth. First, the principle of seeking truth from facts emphasizes the organic link of "truth-seeking" and "appropriateness". Second, the principle of historicalism, which holds that the problem should be analyzed from the perspective of development from the perspective of vertical connection of history. Third, the principle of class analysis points out that the Communist Party of China uses Marxist theory of class struggle and class analysis to study social and historical problems, reveals the law of social development, and also lays the theoretical foundation for the study of the history of the Party. Fourth, the principle of integrity, Mr. Wang believes that we should use the holistic, contact, macro method and perspective to grasp history, while emphasizing the integrity of the study of party history from the "problem" "method" "discipline" three aspects of the whole.
Secondly, in view of some methods to deepen the study of the history of the Communist Party of China, Mr. Wang explained in depth from the methodological and specific research methods. First of all, Mr. Wang shared five methodologies that have guiding significance for all social sciences, namely, investigation and research method, contradiction analysis method, logic and history, unity of analysis and synthesis, and unity of induction and interpretation. Subsequently, for the specific research methods of the history of the party, Mr. Wang also made a relevant interpretation. First, we should master the historical comparative research method from the perspective of "different and different". Second, we should use the attitude of "unbeliever" but "unfaithful" to understand the method of oral history. Third, the hypothesis analysis method, the reverse investigation method, the quantity analysis method, the fuzzy method, etc. are also the methods that we need to apply specifically when studying the history of the Party.
The lecture came to a close in applause. Professor Wang Yue also summarized the lecture, saying that Party history is a unique research value, but also a basic subject of Marxist theory. Party history and Marxist disciplines are closely linked and inseparable. This lecture on the study and discussion of Party history, helped the students of Marxist College to expand their horizons, innovate their thinking, and lay the foundation for future study.
