Here is my best explanation:

'accumulated household items for union' is the definition.

'taiwan's top philosopher' is the wordplay.
'taiwan's top' becomes 't' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'philosopher' becomes 'rousseau' (Rousseau is an example).
't'+'rousseau'='TROUSSEAU'
