Abstract: The unity of science and value is a basic philosophical principle followed by human practice. In the practice of socialist construction, Mao Zedong not only emphasized the adherence to the scientific dimension, but also emphasized the realization of the
value dimension and explores the ultimate goal. Due to the influence of many factors, Mao Zedong did not carry out the principle of the unification of science and value in the exploration of socialist construction, which eventually led to the major setback of socialist construction in China. The experience and lessons gained from Mao Zedong 's exploration of socialist construction enlighten us to advance the construction of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, and we must adhere to the philosophical principle of the unification of science and value.
Key words: Mao Zedong; socialist construction; unity of science and value; China road
