Qian Fan;Cao Runqing;
Qian Mu Was a famous historian of Chinese academic history in the 20 th century. Scholars' research on Qian Mu's scholarship mostly focused on his historiography system, historical thought, and the achievements of his textual research. However, they paid little attention to his theory of "Cultural Science " in the late 1940 s and its maturity in Taiwan. But Qian Mu's "Cultural Science"should be regarded as the landmark work of Taiwanese Academic Confucianism after the Recovery of Taiwan. This article tries to start with the development trajectory of Qian Mu's "Cultural Science"system, and analyzes the "Cultural Science" research categories such as the three-tier, two-type, and seven-elements given by Qian, and comments on the staging of Chinese Cultural History, comparison of Chinese and Western cultures, and The Future Development of Chinese Cultures, etc, further reveals the Confucianism spirit of Qian Mu's "Cultural Science" system and its treatment to "Cultural Taiwan Independence".
