The Future of a Pastime
This epilogue discusses the survival and persistence of jinshi in the twentieth century. It considers the rise of a patriotic archaeology that sought to substantiate the great age of Chinese civilization and undermine the less Nationalistic implications of the “doubting antiquity” movement. It also examines the influence of jinshi scholars Luo Zhenyu and Wang Guowei on antiquarianism in China as well as the overlap between the fields of history and archaeology, along with the interrelationships among jinshi and art practice, ritual studies, and other elements of the traditional pastime. Finally, it stresses the paramount rationale of jinshi: the perpetuation of the Chinese nation and its history that will secure the future of the pastime.
