Covering 12 disciplines－literature, history, philosophy, art, law, politics, society, economics, military, education, science and culture, the database’s scale and high level are unprecedented. It collects many newly discovered documents and some significant thinkers’ complete works published for the first time such as: Hu Han-Min, Tao Xi-Sheng, Jiang Kang-Hu, Fang Dong-Shu, Tang Jian, etc.; Other figures are such as May 4th Movement figures, anti-May 4th Movement figures, New Confucians, and Kuomintang figures who were severely criticized by the mainland China (such as Wu Zhihui, Dai Jitao, etc.). Those figures have always been irreconcilable, but they coexist in the same database.
Among the databases of ancient Chinese books, this is the only think tank that takes Chinese thoughts and thinkers as the main axis. Combining literature and research, it can be regarded as an essential resource for the entry into the study of Chinese intellectual history.
