The 8th issue of Seeking Truth, published on April 16, published an important article by Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, President of the State and Chairman of the Central Military Commission. The article emphasizes that the new era calls for outstanding writers, artists and theorists. Literary and artistic creation and academic innovation have a vast space. We should strengthen cultural self-confidence, grasp the pulse of the times, listen to the voice of the times, insist on synchronizing with the times, take the people as the center, devote the people to fine works, and lead the fashion with wisdom and virtue.
How to do a good job in cultural, literary and philosophical and Social Sciences work under the new situation? Xi Jinping put forward four points of hope. His earnest words and earnest expectations not only put forward a fundamental follow for cultural, literary and philosophical and Social Sciences work, but also a guide for cultural, literary and philosophical and Social Sciences workers.
On the afternoon of March 4, 2019, Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, President of the State and Chairman of the Central Military Commission, visited members of the cultural, artistic and social sciences circles who attended the second session of the 13th CPPCC National Committee, and participated in joint meetings to listen to opinions and suggestions.
Insist on keeping pace with the times
The ancients said, "Articles should be written in time, songs and poems should be written in time." The so-called "acting for the time" and "acting for the matter" are to give the forerunner of the times and make a contribution to the development of the times.
I hope you will be firm in cultural self-confidence, grasp the pulse of the times, listen to the voice of the times, undertake the mission of recording, writing and eulogizing the new era, be brave in answering the issues of the times, discover the theme of creation and capture the inspiration of innovation from the great creation of contemporary China, profoundly reflect the great changes of our times, and depict the spiritual map of our times. The portrait of the generation, the biography of the times, and the morality of the times.
Adhere to people-centered
The so-called "the movement of the ROC is not a feather of light; the speed of the parallels is not a foot of strength". If China wants to fly high and run fast, it must gather and inspire the great power of nearly 1.4 billion people.
Cultural and literary workers should jump out of the "little joys and sorrows around them" and go into the depths of practice, observe people's lives, express people's aspirations, and work hard to express, describe and sing the people.
Philosophy and social science workers should go out of the ivory tower, do more on-the-spot investigation and research, understand the living conditions of the people, grasp the pulse of the masses'thoughts, and focus on the needs of the masses to solve doubts, explain reasons, and write knowledge into the hearts of the masses.
Persist in Devoting to the People with Excellent Products
If we don't put our mind and energy on the creation of high-quality products, we can't become masters or everyone if we only want to take shortcuts and make quick progress.
All valuable and meaningful literary and artistic creation and academic research should reflect the reality and look at the reality, and should be conducive to solving practical problems and answering practical issues.
Literary and artistic creation should be based on taking root and deeply rooting in the times, combining concepts and means, integrating content and form to carry out in-depth innovation, so as to improve the spiritual height, cultural connotation and artistic value of the works.
Based on the great practice of socialism with Chinese characteristics, the study of philosophy and social sciences should put forward independent and original theoretical viewpoints and construct the disciplinary system, academic system and discourse system with Chinese characteristics.
Stick to Leading Fashion with Mingde
In the new era, cultural and artistic workers, philosophers and social scientists should have faith, feelings and responsibilities, set up lofty ideal pursuit and profound national feelings, closely integrate individual artistic pursuit and academic ideal with national future and national destiny, closely integrate with people's well-being, and strive to be a country, a nation and a nation. Artists and scholars who contribute to the people.
We should adhere to the noble professional ethics, make more hard work, practice more real work, and accomplish diligence and high-quality work.
We should consciously practice the socialist core values, respect ourselves and cherish ourselves in the face of the tide of market economy, stress taste, style and responsibility, and resist vulgarity and vulgarity.
Good professional ethics is embodied in perseverance, the pursuit of "looking to the end of the world", enduring the cold of "last night's west wind withering green trees" and the loneliness of "going to the tall building alone", and finally reaching the realization of "suddenly looking back, the man is in the place where the lights are fading".
