本文研究的目的在於分析、比較19世紀後半葉中、越改革思想的異同及其歷史意義。 包括在研究架構上，先針對清季洋務運動的改革思想及具體實踐作一整體、概括的瞭解；然後再針對越南的維新思想作一整體的分析與把握；進而在上述基礎上，對二者的異同及成敗得失作一分析。 筆者希望透過上述研究，能提供關心中、越近代改革的人士作一參考，並能引發更多的相關研究。 The purpose of this study is to analyze, compare the differences and the similarities as well as the historical significances of Vietnamese reform thought in the latter half of the 19th century.
The research framework includes three parts: firstly, the study integrates into a whole and brings up a general understanding of the reform thought and the specific practice of Qing’s Yang Wu Movement. Secondly, makes a general analysis and certainty in accordance with Vietnamese reform thought. Finally, this analysis carries out the success and the failure of the differences and the similarities which are mentioned above.
Hopefully, this research would provide a reference to researchers who are interested in modern reform issues and to further studies in related topic in the future.
