Recently, Comrade Deng Xiaoping specially stressed that it is necessary to further implement the policies for intellectuals, and give rein to the function of science and technology talents better.

Scientific and technology circles must continue to implement intellectual policies.

State Council approves six policy boundaries.

The National Science and Technology Commission “Report Outline” pointed out that, the new achievements created by contemporary humanity may not be treated as heresies or bourgeois sugar-coated bullets; free discussion must be advocated for academic thinking in the natural science area; opposition to spiritual pollution may not be raised in natural sciences and technology work.

Report of this Paper, report by the Xinhua journalist Go Mainan and this paper’s journalist He Huangbiao: The National Science and Technology Commission recently put forward six policy boundaries for science and technology circles to continue to implement the intellectual policies in the “Report Outline” concerning convening the National Science and Technology Work Conference.

The six policies that have been approved by the State Council are:

I, Science and technology personnel shall be encouraged to study and grasp the new achievements of global modern science and technology. Natural science and technology do not have a class nature, and new achievements created by contemporary humanity may not be treated as heresies or bourgeois sugar-coated bullets.

II, Many new dual disciplines between the natural sciences and the social sciences are currently emerging. They shall be earnestly understood, researched and studied, so that their quintessence can be truly absorbed, and the dregs discarded. Refusing to understanding them, fearing engagement with them, not analysing them, totally rejecting them or totally affirming them are all wrong attitudes.

III, When discussing major policy decisions in the area of science and technology or the discussing the feasibility of techno-economics, science and technology personnel shall be encouraged to liberate thoughts, seek truth from facts, speak out freely and launch debate. Different opinions from leading comrades cannot be said to be “not maintaining consistency with the Party”.

IV, In the areas of science and technology policies and management, conducting comparative research of domestic and foreign experiences, stimulates and assists the path of deepening reform, research and learning must not be rejected because of differences in the social system.

V, Towards academic thinking in the natural sciences, free discussion must be advocated, it must be permitted that there is some free theme selection in scientific research work, trials with talent mobility, free group composition, etc., must be conducted in management work. These must not be spoken of as “bourgeois liberalization”.

VI, Where different opinions emerge in research work, some exploration and trials will not be completely perfect or even unsuccessful, there are also differences in people’s capacity to apply the theories of Marxism, this is all unavoidable. Comradely discussion shall be conducted under the guidance of the policy of the “Two Hundred”, and the necessary criticism and self-criticism launched. But, opposing spiritual pollution must not be raised in natural science and technology work.

国务院批准六条政策界限
最近,邓小平同志特别强调要进一步落实知识分子政策,更好地发挥现有科技人才的作用。
科技界要继续落实知识分子政策
国务院批准六条政策界限
国家科委《汇报提纲》指出,不要把当代人类创造的新成果当作异端邪说、资产阶级糖衣炮弹;对自然科学领域的学术思想,要提倡自由讨论;在自然科学和技术工作中不要提反对精神污染
本报讯 新华社记者顾迈南、本报记者何黄彪报道:国家科委最近在关于召开全国科技工作会议的《汇报提纲》中,提出了在科技界继续落实知识分子政策的六条政策界限。
已经国务院批准的这六条政策界限是:
一,应当鼓励科技人员努力学习掌握世界现代科学技术新成就。自然科学和技术是没有阶级性的,不要把当代人类创造的新成果当作异端邪说、资产阶级糖衣炮弹。
二,在自然科学与社会科学之间正在不断出现许多新的边缘学科。应当认真了解、研究和学习,真正做到吸收精华、扬弃糟粕。拒绝了解,害怕接触,或者不加分析全盘否定,全盘肯定,都是不正确的态度。
三,在讨论科技方面重大决策和论证技术经济可行性时,应当鼓励科技人员解放思想,实事求是,畅所欲言,展开争论。不能把与领导同志意见不同说成是“同党不保持一致”。
四,在科技政策与管理方面,进行国内国外经验的比较研究,对于探索改革的路子会有启发和帮助,不要因为社会制度的不同就拒绝研究和借鉴。
五,对自然科学领域的学术思想,要提倡自由讨论,科研工作中要允许有一部分自由选题,管理工作中要进行人才流动和自由组合等试验。不要把这些说成是什么“资产阶级自由化”。
六,在研究过程中出现不同意见,进行探索试验有的不尽完善甚至并不成功,人们对马克思主义理论的运用能力也各有差异,这都是不可避免的。应当在“双百”方针指导下,进行同志式的讨论,开展必要的批评与自我批评。但是,在自然科学和技术工作中不要提反对精神污染。
