This chapter discusses the de-Sinicization process by the Lee Teng-hui and Chen Shui-bian regimes in Taiwan. Although it appeared that the state was moving towards a more exclusive Taiwanese nationalism, it was actually not quite sure about its steps. However, the organic, professional, and critical roles of the intellectuals were becoming clearer, especially their organic roles.

Keywords: de-Sinicization process; Lee Teng-hui; Chen Shui-bian; Taiwanese nationalism; roles; intellectuals
