唐太宗政治思想之探析 (view more...) Add to list

Abstract: 在正文的寫作上:第二章、李世民的家世背景,是以陳寅恪先生、李樹桐先生的考證為基礎,對李唐先世作一溯源,再論其對李世民之影響。第三章、由起兵到統一,筆者主要探討李世民之軍事領導思想,帶兵打仗,除了磨練其領導能力,同時累積戰央A奠定日後統治的基礎。此章多引用周聲夏先生與李則芬先生的說法。第四章、玄武門之變,筆者以為是此篇論文的樞紐。在玄武門之變發生時,李世民已是位高權重,也累積了釵h戰本P歷練,招攬了釵h人才,雖然尚未登上帝位,但實際上應已有成熟的政治思想。筆者以為,欲真正窺見一個人的人格與思想,最好的方式,便是分析其面對危機時的態度與處理方式。玄武門之變可說是李世民登臨帝位前最艱困之一役,從整個事件發生的始末,應可見其真正的思想與人格。玄武門之變,可以說把李世民的能力逼到極致,對其心理、思想與日後之施政,也應有極大的影響,所以筆者非常重視。在引用史料的選擇上,作了一番辯證與思考,希望盡可能客觀、公正。第五章、唐太宗的施政方針,筆者欲探討唐太宗之施政基礎,究竟為儒家思想或法家思想,舉出數位專家的說法,以為佐證。第六章、思想探析,筆者以為唐太宗之思想以「務實」為始,以「博達」終。以「以史為鑑」──唐太宗對待歷史的態度及實際的措施,來說明其「務實」的思想;以「善用賢才」,來探討其「博達」的思想,徵引古籍,以為佐証。第七章、結語。...
