In 1934, the reform of the Department of Chinese Language and Literature of Peking University triggered the case of Lin Sun blames Hu Shi. A closer look at this case can be seen: the dismissal of Lin Sun is indeed related to Hu Shi, which is the result of Hu Shi's rejection of the old school department at Peking University and the establishment of a new school. Lin Sun and Hu Shi's public case, although only a minor episode of Peking University's reform, is a dispute between different academic factions of Peking University, but from the results of this reform, Peking University has lost its original "tolerance" and "freedom".
