In the 1980s, Taiwan’s economy was booming and the social structure was rapidly transformed. But at the same time, the cultural and spiritual parts of people’s lives were descending. Therefore, with concerns for social vulnerable groups and aiming at cultural, environmental, and political issues, the “Human” magazine was created. The author Tsai Ming-Te was involved with the affairs of the magazine from the beginning of the foundation to the very end. Through his lens and memories, we can go back to the spot of the “human”— to see how low-class people had paid for their living, to rehear the calling from people at the time when the martial law was about going to an end, and to reveal how the glamour of a successful industrial society had caused damage to the environment and human souls.
