钱穆(1895—1990),字宾四,江苏无锡人,中国现代著名历史学家、教育家,享誉中外的国学大师。钱穆是从中国乡村中崛起来的学问家,他一生从未上过大学,接受现代意义的正规学术训练;更没有出国留学,沐浴西方文化的雨露,完全靠自学苦读成就了一番学术事业,由乡村小学教师、中学教师而走向大学讲台,成为大学教授、名教授,成为一代学术大师。钱穆治学出入经、史、子、集四部,著述达千万言以上,是20世纪中国国学界的一位通儒,有“一代儒宗”、“最后一位国学大师”之誉。钱穆毕生以阐释和弘扬中国文化为己任,他学问的宗主和人生的终极关怀就是关心中国文化的传承,也就是在西方文化的强烈震荡、冲击下,中国传统文化究竟何去何从的问题。他一再告诫国人:“你是中国人,不要忘了中国,不要一笔抹杀自己民族的历史与文化”;他也从不掩饰他一生教授学生的目的就是要为中国文化招魂,为中国文化招义勇兵。其毕生的著述、讲学之宗旨,刻刻不离于对国家前途与民族文化之关怀。他对中华民族得以自立的文化生命和精神元气大加阐扬和维护,始终对中国文化传统的内在生命力抱有坚定的信心。
